WHAT IS AN A1C?

Diabetes Care Guide (English) - - RETAIL NEWS -

Your He­moglobin A1C is a mea­sure­ment of your av­er­age blood glu­cose con­trol for the last two to three months. About 50 per­cent of the value comes from the last 30 days.

Your A1C should be mea­sured ev­ery three months, if your blood glu­cose tar­gets are not be­ing met or if you are mak­ing changes to your di­a­betes man­age­ment.

Your A1C is an im­por­tant mea­sure­ment of your di­a­betes con­trol, as well as be­fore meal and af­ter meal blood glu­cose lev­els.
