Diabetes in menopause  Diagnosis


Since menopausal women are mostly aged 45 and above, diabetes screening is highly recommended. To diagnose diabetes, the doctor may perform one or more of the following tests:

  • Glycated hemoglobin (A1C) test: Calculates average blood sugar level for the past 2-3 months
  • Fasting blood sugar test: Calculates blood sugar levels after an overnight fast (for atleast eight hours)
  • Oral glucose tolerance test: Calculates fasting blood sugar level at empty stomach, followed by drinking of sugary liquid and blood sugar levels will be measured after 2 hours.

Once diagnosed, A1C levels should be checked 2-4 times a year. In addition, the doctor will advise for routine blood and urine examinations periodically to check for cholesterol levels, thyroid function, liver function and kidney function. Blood pressure checking along with regular eye and foot examinations is also important 8.
