If you have a membership/subscription, you qualify for a complimentary in-lab A1C test every 90 days. We use healthlabs.com to set up the test. The available labs are usually a Quest Diagnostics or Labcorp location. We pay for it, and you simply stop by the selected lab at your convenience. These are typically drop in tests, so there's no need for an appointment.
For people with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes A1C levels are the best way to track results, so it’s important to schedule your first test before or soon after you begin taking Pendulum Glucose Control.
Note: A1C levels may not be the best indicator of results if you do not have type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. This is especially true if your A1C levels are already within a healthy range.
How do I schedule my test?
To schedule your A1C test, email your full name, date of birth, and the zip code where you would like to take your test to email@example.com. Be sure to use “Schedule A1C Test” as the subject line so we know why you’re reaching out. We’ll schedule your test, and follow up with the details. This is a drop in appointment, so you can stop by your local lab at your earliest convenience.
Note: Some labs do take appointments, and may prioritize those appointments over any walk-ins.
What if I already have a preferred lab?
If you already have a preferred lab, just let us know, and we’ll attempt to schedule your A1C test there. If we’re unable to schedule your test at your preferred lab, we’ll credit the cost (up to $40) back to your credit card. All you have to do is submit your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There aren’t any labs close to me. What do I do?
We use healthlabs.com to schedule your A1C test, and we’ll notify you if the closest available lab is 50+ miles away. If you prefer to use a more conveniently located lab, you have the option of setting the test up yourself, and we’ll credit the cost (up to $50) back to your credit card (the test typically costs in the $30-$40 range). To receive your credit, just submit your receipt to email@example.com.
