About this package
HbA1c, also known as Hemoglobin A1c or A1c, is glycosylated hemoglobin or glycohemoglobin in which the glucose molecule present in the blood non-enzymatically binds to hemoglobin. HbA1c test reflects those RBC that are present in the blood at the time of test and measures average blood glucose concentration over 3-4 months. This gives an indication of long-term blood glucose control which serves as a regular monitoring tool if a person has been diagnosed with diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, this test is mandatory for diabetic patients and should be performed four times a year.

FAQ

HbA1c stands for glycosylated haemoglobin, this test is used for screening, diagnosing, and monitoring diabetes to check for average blood glucose levels in the past 2-3 months, which acts as a marker in long-term glucose control, in identifying diabetes and checking how well it’s being controlled.

If you are diabetic, check how the blood sugar has been managed over three months As a part of regular check-ups to keep an eye on blood sugar metabolism If you have signs and symptoms that suggest high or low sugar levels If someone in your family has diabetes If you have crossed the age of 35.

A fasting blood glucose test measures your blood sugar after fasting overnight (8-12 hours). HbA1c test results reflect the average amount of sugar attached to haemoglobin over the duration of 2 to 3 months (Typical lifetime of red blood cells). This helps us identify whether there have been fluctuations in blood sugar levels that were not caught in the fasting or random blood sugar tests.

For people with diabetes, this test is recommended more often, mostly every 3 to 6 months, for the rest, it is recommended to get this test at least once in 12 months.

The HbA1c test is proven to reduce complications in patients with pre-diabetes and diabetes by diagnosing the condition of the patient and estimating the risk at early stages.

An HbA1C value of less than 5.7 percent is considered normal, between 5.7% to 6.4% is considered prediabetic and 6.5 or higher is considered diabetic. If the HbA1c test results are high, it means the blood sugar levels were not under control. The higher the value of HbA1c, the bigger is the risk of developing complications associated with diabetes.

Regular HbA1c monitoring can help you lower the risk of complications, during pregnancy and minimize the risk of the baby growing excessively large causing challenges during delivery.
