What is HBA1C Test

The HbA1c test measures the amount of glycated hemoglobin in the blood, which reflects the average blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months. This test is performed by taking a blood sample from a vein in the arm, and the sample is sent to a lab for analysis. The HbA1c test is used to diagnose and monitor diabetes, and a high HbA1c level indicates poor blood sugar control. It is recommended that individuals with diabetes get this test done at least twice a year.
