Full name of the HbA1c test is Hemoglobin A1c. This test is used to evaluate the level of blood sugar. Hemoglobin is a red blood cell and protein as well. Its main purpose is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the whole body. HbA1c test will show the average level of blood sugar over the past of 8 to 12 weeks. It is also known as glycated hemoglobin. Typically, red blood cells live for three months that’s why we measure in 3-month average. The hba1c test helps to diagnose diabetes and prediabetes.

HbA1c test results are evaluated in percentages. The normal level of HbA1c must be below 5.7%. For prediabetes HbA1c value should be between 5.7% and 6.4%. For diabetic people, the level is higher than 6.5%. The doctors highly recommend that the level of HbA1c must be below 7% for a diabetic patient. For gestational diabetes HbA1c test is not used.
