Hemoglobin A1C (Hba1c)

What is it and how does it affect me?

A hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin. This biomarker indicates your average blood sugar level over the past three months, which may be useful in identifying people suffering from diabetes or prediabetes. In people with known diabetes or prediabetes, HbA1c levels help indicate how well these conditions are being managed.
