HbA1c

Rs. 300 Rs. 500 40%


The HbA1c test estimates the amount of glucose, or sugar in the blood, in your bloodstream over the last 3 months. A marker for the long-term blood sugar con.Glucose is a type of sugar, which your body uses as its main source of energy. Your body produces or gets glucose from foods you eat. Glucos.

If your body isn’t able to make enough insulin, or if your body’s cells have trouble accepting insulin, your blood glucose level can rise to a dangerous level. This may lead to diabetes, a serious disease that can damage your body’s organs if it is not kept under control.

Glucose has the ability to bind to haemoglobin in the bloodstream and forms HbA1c. Haemoglobin is the protein found in red blood cells that carries oxygen. A measure of HbA1c reflects the percentage of haemoglobin A bound to glucose relative to the total amount of haemoglobin A in the blood.

Purpose of the HbA1c test:

The HbA1c test may have several purposes:

  • Screening for prediabetes and diabetes: Screening involves verifying a person's health before they develop symptoms. If you are more than 40 and are obese or overweight, or if you are otherwise at a high risk for diabetes, your doctor may want to examine you. The HbA1c test can be used for diabetes screening, but it may be necessary to confirm the results by repeating the test or using another type of test.

  • Diagnosing prediabetes and diabetes: Diagnosis uses tests and procedures to find out the cause of health changes. Your doctor may order a HbA1c test for you, among other tests, if you have symptoms or show signs of diabetes. Diabetes symptoms can include excessive thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision, tingling or loss of sensation in the feet and hands, and feeling extremely tired.

  • Diabetes monitoring: If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, your doctor may prescribe an HbA1c test at least twice annually. This informs your doctor about how effectively your blood glucose has been managed in the months between checkups. Keeping track of your blood glucose allows your doctor to tweak your treatment plan and reduce your risk of developing health concerns.

What does the test measure?

  • The HbA1c test determines how much glucose is bound to haemoglobin A in your blood.

  • The greater the amount of glucose in the blood, the more glucose is bound to haemoglobin.

  • Because red blood cells have a three-month life span, your HbA1c test result reflects your average blood glucose level over the previous three months.
