The details

Why test HbA1c?

There is no way to estimate an average blood sugar level by looking at diet intake, symptoms, or heart rate. This test provides useful insight that may otherwise be difficult to obtain. Healthy blood sugar is very important. Many health conditions have been associated with abnormal blood sugar levels. These include but are not limited to obesity, diabetes, prediabetes, and sleeping issues like obstructive sleep apnea.

What will my results tell me?

Hemoglobin A1c gives an average of your blood sugar for the last 90 days. A result under 5.7% is normal. The prediabetic range is 5.7-6.4%. The diabetic range is >6.4%. Monitoring hemoglobin A1c every 90 days allows you to better understand how lifestyle choices and supervised medical treatments are affecting your blood sugar.

Take this test if you…

This test is designed for all adults who want to better understand their blood sugar levels. Everyone can benefit from having this test. Repeat hemoglobin A1c testing regularly to see how your levels change over time.
