Glycated Albumin Levels in Tears Allow Noninvasive Glucose Testing

The glucose test helps determine if a person’s glucose level is too high or too low, which can indicate the presence of Type 2 diabetes and other medical conditions. The two most common types of glucose testing are the fasting plasma glucose test and the random plasma glucose test. More...

Galectin-3 Predicts Cardiovascular Disease Risk in Diabetic Patients

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels. It's usually associated with a build-up of fatty deposits inside the arteries (atherosclerosis) and an increased risk of blood clots. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) can lead to early and severe atherosclerosis. More...

Urine Osmolality Measurement Evaluated on Automated Analyzer

Urinalysis is a convenient and non‐invasive screening tool for use in both an outpatient and inpatient setting. Automated flow cytometry‐based urine analyzer is increasingly being used to identify and enumerate cells and particles in urine specimens. It measures electrical conductivity which could be transformed to osmolality. More...
