What is a HbA1c test?

A HbA1c blood test measures the average percentage of blood sugar (glucose) attached to your hemoglobin over the past 3 months. The lifespan of a human red blood cell is approximately 115 days. Thus, the HbA1c blood test measures the three-month average of blood sugar in the body. A Hba1c blood test is also known as a glycated hemoglobin test or hemoglobin A1c test.

A general physician in Sonipat may recommend a HbA1c blood test for the following reasons:

  • To perform a diabetes check to monitor if diabetic individuals on medication have their HbA1c levels within the normal range.
  • The hemoglobin A1c test can also be used to diagnose diabetes, alongside fasting blood sugar tests.

Why do I need a HbA1c blood test?

A glycated hemoglobin test can be used to effectively check for diabetes or pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a state where your blood sugar levels are higher than the normal range, thereby increasing the risk of developing diabetes. If you have diabetes, you may need a hemoglobin A1c test to check if your blood sugar control is good. If you do not have diabetes, a general physician in Sonipat may recommend a hemoglobin A1c test if you show the following diabetes symptoms:

A general physician in Sonipat may also recommend a hypercholesterolemia or HbA1c blood test if you are diagnosed with conditions that increase your risk of developing diabetes. The risk factors include:

What happens during the HbA1c blood test?

During the glycated hemoglobin test, a phlebotomist will inject a needle into the vein of your arm to draw blood. The blood sample is collected into a test tube or vial for further analysis. You may feel a sting in the injected area, but the pain goes away after the process is completed. The HbA1c blood test gets over in just 5 minutes.

Your blood sample will be sent to skilled laboratory professionals who will analyze the sample using specialized medical technology. The medical reports will be uploaded to your profile on the MFine app within 24-72 hours. You can avail of your free consultation with a general physician in Sonipat who will recommend further tests, medicines, or direct you to a diabetologist if required.

What do the results of an HbA1c blood test mean?

Hemoglobin A1c test results are read as percentages. The following are the HbA1c blood test results interpretations:

  • HbA1c below 5.7%: This result indicates a normal amount of blood sugar attached to the hemoglobin.
  • HbA1c between 5.7% and 6.4%: This result indicates the likelihood of pre-diabetes. A general doctor in Sonipat will ask you to make lifestyle modifications to decrease your risk of developing diabetes.
  • Hba1c above 6.5%: This result indicates that you may have diabetes. Your doctor may direct you to a diabetologist in Sonipat who can provide you with specialized diabetes treatment. A diabetologist will understand your health condition and prescribe you with medicines and other lab tests if required.
