Description

Approximately  30  million  Americans,  just  under  10%  of  the  population,  have diabetes;  approximately  8  million  are  undiagnosed.  Careful  management  of blood sugar (glucose) levels is key to avoiding complications from diabetes.  A1C tests measure average blood sugar (glucose) over the previous 2-3 months, so that  people  with  diabetes  can  know  how  well  they  are  managing  their  blood sugar levels. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends  testing for A1C at least twice a year, and promotes the importance of the ABCs of Diabetes Management:  managing  A1C, Blood, Pressure and Cholesterol levels to within goals established by healthcare providers.

A1C is an important test for monitoring the long-term control of blood sugar (glucose) in people with diabetes.

For people not yet diagnosed, the ADA says there is an increased risk for diabetes when A1C is greater than or equal to 6.5%.
