The % of Hemoglobin A1c refers to the amount of glycated hemoglobin in the blood. Glycated hemoglobin is red blood cells that have glucose attached to them. An A1c between 5.7-6.4% signals prediabetes. Type 2 diabetes is diagnosed when A1c is over 6.5%

Symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes may include:

  • Persistent thirst
  • Feeling hungry even though you are eating a recommended calorie intake each day
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Dry eyes or blurred vision
  • Dry mouth or tongue
  • Itchy skin
  • Unexpected weight loss (type 1 Diabetes)
  • Pain or numbness in the hands (type 2 Diabetes)

The test is used to determine your risk of diabetes (pre-diabetes) or how well your diabetes is being managed.

You should take this test if:

  • You have diabetes type 1 or type 2
