What is the HbA1c Panel?
Our HbA1c test is a blood spot sample test that measures your average blood glucose level (blood sugar) over the past 3 months.
Red blood cells have a lifespan of about 3 months but are constantly renewing within the body. Glucose attaches itself to hemoglobin, which is a protein found in red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout the body. Our HbA1c test measures this glucose to give you an overall look at your blood sugar level over a 3 month period.
Blood sugar levels tested as a single glucose measurement, like with home glucose monitoring, can vary significantly throughout the day based on many factors, including a recent meal or physical activity. A better representation of average blood sugar levels is HbA1c.
