HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test In Delhi

HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test In Delhi

HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test in Delhi is often used as a diagnostic test for diabetes. It is a common blood test that is used to specifically diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes.  It was initially identified as “unusual” haemoglobin in diabetic patients over 4 decades ago. HbA1c reflects average plasma glucose over the previous 8 to 12 weeks. This test can be performed at any time of the day and does not require any special preparation like fasting, making it the preferred test for assessing glycaemic control in people with diabetes.

AN OVERVIEW

About HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test

Why is the HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test done?

An HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin test is performed to check for diabetes or prediabetes in adults. Prediabetes is when your blood sugar levels show you are at a risk of getting diabetes. For diabetic people, the test allows them to monitor their condition and glucose levels. A blood test can measure the amount of glycosylated haemoglobin in the blood. If your results are normal, you should perform the test once in 3 years. If your results point in the direction of prediabetes, you should get tested every 1-2 years. If you are under 45, you might need this test if you observe certain risk factors like:

  1. Gaining excessive weight or suffering from obesity
  2. High blood pressure
  3. History of heart disease
  4. Physical inactivity
What does the HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test measure?

A haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test:

  • finds the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to your haemoglobin. It is the part of your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body
  • reflects what the average amount of glucose attached to haemoglobin has been over the past three months because that’s how long a red blood cell lives
  • gives an indication of how much sugar there has been in the blood over the past few months.
Risk/side effects of HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test

There are little to no risks when it comes to the HbA1c test. You may experience slight pain or bruise at the spot where the needle was put in, but most symptoms go away quickly. Since the test is done by drawing blood, as long as you get it done by a trusted medical professional, there is not much to worry about.

THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the HbA1c Glycated Haemoglobin Test results

An A1c test result is reported as a percentage. The number represents the number of haemoglobin proteins that are glycosylated (holding glucose). The higher the percentage, the higher the blood sugar levels have been over the last few months.

Additionally, the higher your A1C, the greater the risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Your result can also be reported as estimated average glucose (eAG), the same numbers (mg/dL) you’re used to seeing on your blood sugar meter.

HbA1c Glyated Heamoglobin Reading  Health Risk
Lower than 7% NORMAL/ Manageable
5.7% to 6.4%  Pre-Diabetes
7% or higher Diabetes
Between 5.7%-6.7% Pre-Diabetes
