A glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) is a lab test to measure how much sugar has been in your blood over the past 2-3 months. It is used to detect prediabetes, diagnose diabetes as a part of health checkups, and monitor treatment efficacy. HbA1c values are considered normal if <5.7%, while values ? 6.5% are indicative of diabetes. The higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of complications. People having diabetes should take this test regularly to monitor their glucose levels and regulate the treatment decision. A proper schedule of exercise, healthy eating, and medication can assist in bringing down the level.
  • What is Haemoglobin Glycosylated Blood (HbA1c)?

    HbA1c, also known as haemoglobin A1c or glycosylated haemoglobin, is a blood test that measures the average blood sugar levels over the past 2 to 3 months. It provides an overall picture of a person's blood glucose control, especially for those with diabetes.

  • Why is HbA1c testing performed?

    HbA1c testing is performed to monitor and manage blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes or to diagnose diabetes. It helps to assess the effectiveness of current treatment plans, make adjustments to diabetes medication, and determine the risk of complications associated with diabetes.

  • How does HbA1c testing work?

    HbA1c testing reflects the amount of glucose attached to the haemoglobin in red blood cells. As red blood cells typically survive for around 2 to 3 months, testing the level of glycosylated haemoglobin provides insight into average blood sugar levels during that time period.

  • Is fasting necessary before the HbA1c test?

    No, fasting is not required for the HbA1c test. It can be done at any time during the day and does not depend on recent food intake.

  • What are the normal ranges for HbA1c?

    The normal range for HbA1c may vary depending on the laboratory and the population being tested.
