Diabetes: HbA1c refers to glycated haemoglobin. It is also known as Hemoglobin A1c. Determination of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and their utilization for monitoring long-term glycemic control of diabetes mellitus is done by this profile. This test is used to know the average blood sugar level over a period of 3 months. If the level of HbA1c is higher, the risk for diabetic people also increases. People with diabetes should take this test once a year. It is also used to check prediabetes. Prediabetes is a condition which shows that you are at risk of getting diabetes. If a person is a diabetic patient, the HbA1c test is used for monitoring glucose levels. This test is not used for gestational diabetes. HbA1c test is always shown in percentage. If the level of HbA1c is below 5.7%, it indicates a normal result. If the level is between 5.7% – 6.4% indicates that the person may have prediabetes. If the HbA1c test is higher than 6.5%, it indicates that the person has diabetes. HbA1c reflects long term diabetes complications.
