What is Glycosylated Haemoglobin (Hba1c) test?

Hemoglobin is the substance inside red blood cells that carries oxygen to the cells of the body. Glucose (a type of sugar) molecules in the blood normally become stuck to hemoglobin molecules - this means the hemoglobin has become glycosylated (also referred to as hemoglobin A1c or HbA1c). As a person's Blood sugar becomes higher, more of the person's hemoglobin becomes glycosylated. The Glucose remains attached to the hemoglobin for the life of the red blood cell, or about 2 to 3 months.

Why get Glycosylated Haemoglobin (Hba1c) the test?


By measuring glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), an overall picture of what the average blood sugar levels have been over a period of 3 months can be known. For people with diabetes this is important as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications.
