What is an A1c test?
An A1c test reflects your average blood sugar over the past two to three months. The higher it is, the higher your blood sugar levels have been. An A1c test result is typically a percentage between 4 and 14.
Why is it important to test A1c?
An A1c test is used to diagnose prediabetes and diabetes. You and your care team can also use it to make treatment decisions. Take steps that will help you get closer to the target set by your healthcare team. Higher A1c levels are linked to other health issues. Click here to read more about A1c.
