About the HgA1c or A1c Test

The A1c Test is used to diagnose, confirm or monitor Metabolic Syndrome, Prediabetes, Diabetes Type 1, Type 2 Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes

The A1c test measures the amount of sugar that is attached to hemoglobin, a protein in your red blood cells.  The amount of sugar that is attached is reflective of the overall or average concentration of blood sugar.  So the higher your blood sugar, the more it is attached to red blood cells and the higher the Percent value of A1c.
