Lab: MOHO
Rs.900.00 Rs.965.00
The A1C test, also known as the HbA1c test or haemoglobin A1C test, is a simple blood test that examines your average blood sugar levels over the previous three months. It is one of the most commonly used tests for diagnosing prediabetes and diabetes, as well as the most important test for assisting you and your healthcare team in managing your diabetes.

Description

A glycosylated haemoglobin test determines the quantity of glucose (sugar) in your blood. The test is often known as A1c or HbA1c.
Hemoglobin is used in A1c testing. Hemoglobin is the component of red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout the body. Glucose glycates (sticks) to haemoglobin when it is present in the blood. The more glucose there is in your blood, the better it sticks. And it may stay there for three months, which is roughly the usual lifespan of a red blood cell. The A1c test determines the average amount of glucose linked to haemoglobin throughout time.
