HB1AC - This test indicates to what extent the blood - sugar remains under control. If the number is equal to or less than 5.7, the sugar - level is under excellent - control.
2) liver - function test - there are a number of parameters such as SGOT, SGPT, Billrubin - content, Protiens - total etc to evaluate the liver - functioning.
3) Lipid - profile - This test would ensure how far the Cholesterol - level is being maintained. Normal - range is below 200. Triglycerides, too, is an important parameter for the evaluation of trans - fat, the normal number being less than 200.
