I lost a good friend to colon cancer.. he said the same thing. (Please. it is needed once a decade) colon cancer is one of the most curable cancers, so please reconsider.Quote Originally Posted by Madeline View Post

If you DO choose the Occult blood screen only, and it is EVER POSITIVE run, don't walk to get your colonoscopy.
Actually you are not.. and A1C is a great test to follow your diabetes.. if you are doing it more often than every 3 months you are pretty much wasting your time.
How the A1C works is it is part of the Hemoglobin in your Red cells, the life span of a Red Cell is 120 days so this is why you wait 3 months between testing.
Blood Glucose can detect an ACUTE problem, A1C tells you if their is a chronic problem in your insulin or other diabetic treatments.
So keep up the A1C testing.. just don't over do it unnecessarily
