Test Details & Preparation

  • HbA1c test is done to help identify those at an increased risk of developing diabetes and to help diagnose diabetes to monitor a person's diabetes and to aid in treatment decisions.

  • HbA1c test is performed as part of a health check-up or when you have risk factors for or symptoms of diabetes after first diagnosis with diabetes, 4 times per year if glycemic goals are not met or when therapy plan has change at least 2 times a year if meeting treatment goals and under stable glycemic control.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm or from a finger-stick for an HbA1c test.

  • No preparation is needed for an HbA1c test.

  • For monitoring glucose control, A1C is currently reported as a percentage and, for most diabetics, it is recommended that they aim to keep their haemoglobin A1C below 7%.

  • The A1C test report also may include the result expressed in SI units (mmol/mol) and an estimated Average Glucose (eAG), which is a calculated result, based on the haemoglobin A1C levels.

  • The A1C test will not reflect temporary, acute blood glucose increases or decreases, or good control that has been achieved in the last 3-4 weeks. The glucose swings of someone who has "brittle" diabetes will also not be reflected in the A1C.
