About A1c

Hemoglobin is found inside red blood cells, and like all proteins, links up with sugars such as glucose. The more excess glucose in a person's blood, the more glucose links up with hemoglobin and the more A1c (also known as glycated hemoglobin or HbA1c) will be found. The A1c test measures a person's average blood glucose level for the past few months and suggests how well a diabetes treatment plan is working. Although the A1C test is an important tool, it does not replace the daily self-testing of blood glucose.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends regular measurement of A1c levels in all diabetics. Just as cholesterol levels are used to predict the risk of developing heart disease, the A1c value can predict the risk of developing many of the chronic complications associated with diabetes.
