Doctors can determine whether a patient has a normal metabolism, pre-diabetes or diabetes in three different ways. One of such ways is the AIC test.
The AIC test is a blood test that provides your average levels of blood glucose over the past 3 months.
Other names for the A1C test are hemoglobin A1C, HbA1C, glycated hemoglobin, and glycosylated hemoglobin test. You can eat and drink before this test.
When it comes to using the A1C to diagnose diabetes, your doctor will consider factors such as your age and whether you have anaemia or another problem with your blood.
Your health care professional will report your A1C test result as a percentage, such as an A1C of 7 percent. The higher the percentage, the higher your average blood glucose levels.
At least 6.5% means diabetes, between 5.7% and 5.99% means pre-diabetes and less than 5.7% means.
So it is important to be informed about this health condition in order to take the necessary steps to either avoid it or manage it if you have been diagnosed with it.
