Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the glycated hemoglobin test used for?
The glycated hemoglobin test, commonly known as the HbA1c test, is used to measure the average blood sugar (glucose) levels over a period of approximately two to three months. It provides an indication of a person's long-term blood sugar control, which is important in managing conditions like diabetes.
2. What causes glycated hemoglobin?
Glucose (a type of sugar) molecules in the blood normally become stuck to hemoglobin molecules - this means the hemoglobin has become glycosylated (also referred to as hemoglobin A1c, or HbA1c). As a person's blood sugar becomes higher, more of the person's hemoglobin becomes glycosylated.

3. What is a normal range of glycated hemoglobin level?
An HbA1c level below 5.7% is considered normal, 5.7% to 6.4% indicates prediabetes, and 6.5% or higher on two separate tests indicates diabetes. For people with diabetes, the goal is often to keep the HbA1c below 7% to reduce the risk of complications.
4. What if glycated hemoglobin is high?
A high HbA1c means you have too much sugar in your blood. This means you're more likely to develop diabetes complications, like serious problems with your eyes and feet. Knowing your HbA1c level and what you can do to lower it will help you reduce your risk of devastating complications.
5. Can I eat before the HbA1c test?
Yes, it's not necessary to fast before the HbA1c test. This test can be done at any time of the day and doesn’t require any special preparation.
