The HbA1C test or glycosylated hemoglobin test is a blood test that helps diagnose diabetes mellitus. If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus, this test helps monitor how well you control your blood sugar levels. The HbA1C test measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) that gets attached to the hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a protein present in your blood that carries oxygen from your lungs to the other organs and cells in your body. The hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) test measures the average amount of glucose that gets attached to the hemoglobin over three months. This test gives you an average of three months because red blood cells live for about three months or 120 days. The HbA1C test helps diagnose diabetes or prediabetes in adults. It helps you identify if you are on the edge of developing diabetes. If you are already having diabetes mellitus, the HbA1C test results help monitor your blood sugar levels. The three-month average gives an update on the status of your condition. Based on the values of the test, your doctor will assess your progress. The glycosylated hemoglobin test is done by taking a blood sample. This test can be combined with your other regular tests or can be done separately.
