The incredible new $9 A1c Test from ReliOnĀ® at Wal-mart

There are a plethora of tests your family doctor can run to measure your levels of LDL and HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, vitamin D, cortisol, homocysteine, and so much more. Many of these are especially important to those of us who have taken back control of our own weight and health by following a carbohydrate-restricted lifestyle change. This wonderful way of eating has made us healthier than we ever thought possible and we find out by running various diagnostic tests.

In Episode 76 of “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube”, Christine and I talk about one such test called the A1c test. Diabetics know about this test that measures what your average blood glucose number has been over the past 2-3 months. But even for non-diabetics, having an idea about how well your blood sugar control is working is an empowering bit of information that can motivate you to keep up with your low-carb nutritional approach.

Unfortunately, this test tends to be a bit expensive if your doctor runs it in his office–to the tune of about $75-$100. But recently I heard diabetes health blogger Amy Tenderich from the “Diabetes Mine” blog share about an inexpensive A1c test you can get from Wal-mart for just $9.
