Overview of HbA1c Test
The HbA1c test is used to measure the levels of blood sugar (glucose) attached to haemoglobin over 3 months. This combination of haemoglobin and glucose is called HbA1c. Haemoglobin is a component of red blood cells (RBCs) that carries oxygen from the lungs to the whole body. It is usually done once every three months because, typically, the lifespan of a red blood cell is 3 months.
HbA1c test is prescribed to a patient if they are at risk of diabetic problems such as Cardiovascular issues, Nerve problems, Sexual problems (in women), Gum disease, Kidney problems, etc.
Reasons to take the HbA1c Test
It is recommended:
To diagnose and monitor diabetes. With type 2 diabetes your blood glucose gets too high because your body doesn't make enough insulin to move blood sugar from your bloodstream into your cells, or because your cells stop responding to insulin.
Prediabetes means that your blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to diagnosed as diabetes. Lifestyle changes, such as healthy eating and exercise, may help delay or prevent prediabetes from becoming type 2 diabetes.
For people who have diabetes, the test is used to indicate how well diabetes has been controlled over the last few months.
People who have diabetes are advised to get tested every 3 to 6 months or more frequently if it is not under control.
