What is HbA1C?

HbA1c, also known as glycated hemoglobin, is the form of hemoglobin when glucose molecules are attached to it. Glucose is the type of sugar that is released from the food we eat. When your body is not able to utilize the glucose properly, it starts to build up in the blood.
Glucose is attached to everyone's hemoglobin. However, diabetic patients usually have higher levels of blood sugar. A higher HbA1c means that your chance of developing diabetic complications has increased. Knowing your HbA1c level can help you avoid any complications and lower it in time.

What is an HbA1c Test?

HbA1c test is a standard blood test that determines your average blood sugar level. It tests your glycated hemoglobin level, or the amount of glucose in your blood. It is one of the most common tests to diagnose diabetes or prediabetes. HbA1c blood test is especially important for diabetic patients as it provides an indication of how well your diabetes is being managed.

HbA1c test shows the average glucose level for the past 3 months. This is because the hemoglobin is attached to the red blood cell. The average life of a red blood cell is 3 months. This helps a diabetic patient to adjust their medicines accordingly.

When to get an HbA1c Test?

Your doctor may recommend an HbA1c blood test to check if you are diabetic or prediabetic. You may also require the test if you have the following symptoms:

  1. Feeling thirsty all the time
  2. Feeling hungry all the time
  3. Urinating a lot
  4. Weight loss
  5. Frequent infections
  6. Numbness in the hands or feet
  7. Fatigue
  8. Blurred vision
  9. Dry skin
  10. Sores with slow healing

If your test results indicate prediabetes, it’s better to consult your doctor. He may suggest lifestyle changes or a change in medication to improve your HbA1c level. If you test positive but don’t have any symptoms, your doctor may refer you to retake the test.

HbA1c and Diabetes

Diabetic patients normally have higher levels of HbA1c in their blood. It is vital that they monitor their blood sugar level frequently. A higher level of HbA1c can lead to other health complications. It is essential to ensure that the diabetes is being managed properly. The test results can also be used as a diagnostic tool to assess if a person is prediabetic.

HbA1c is a useful test that indicates the average blood glucose level. A diabetic patient must take the test every 3 months. A prediabetic patient should get it once a year. An average person may get the test every 3 years.

According to The American Diabetes Association (ADA), a person above 35 years of age should start screening for diabetes. A person who is overweight or has other diabetic risk factors should also get the test regardless of age.

Your HbA1c goal

The goal for diabetic patients should be below 7%. However, it varies from person to person. Your personal goal can depend on your age, lifestyle, and existing medical conditions. Consult your doctor to set your HbA1c range.
