What is an HbA1c test?

HbA1c stands for Haemoglobin A1c, which is a blood test that measures the average level of blood sugar (glucose) over the past 2-3 months. The test is a reflection of recent long-term sugar (glucose) levels in your blood and can help in diagnosing pre-diabetes and diabetes.

  • This diabetes test can be performed at home and sent to the lab for analysis. Report will show your value of HbA1c. Reference ranges of HbA1c normal range will also be given (in both % and mmol/mol).
  • If you are diabetic, this test is useful for monitoring and managing your blood sugar levels. 
  • The A1C test is a blood test that does not require fasting. 
  • If your A1C level is 6.5% or higher in two separate tests, it indicates diabetes. A range of 5.7% to 6.4% suggests prediabetes, while below 5.7% is considered normal.

What do HbA1c Results Mean?

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) results can be expressed in two different units: percentage (%) and millimoles per mole (mmol/mol). Both units provide information about average blood glucose levels over the past 2-3 months. Here's how you can interpret and explain HbA1c results to a patient in both units:

  1. Percentage (%):

    • Normal Range: Below 5.7%
    • Prediabetes Range: 5.7% to 6.4%
    • Diabetes Range: 6.5% and above

    Explanation:

    • If the result is below 5.7%, it suggests that blood sugar levels have been well-controlled over the past few months.
    • If the result is between 5.7% and 6.4%, it indicates prediabetes, meaning there is an increased risk of developing diabetes.
    • If the result is 6.5% or higher on two separate tests, it is diagnostic of diabetes.
  2. Millimoles per Mole (mmol/mol):

    • Normal Range: Below 39 mmol/mol
    • Prediabetes Range: 39 to 47 mmol/mol
    • Diabetes Range: 48 mmol/mol and above

    Explanation:

    • If the result is below 39 mmol/mol, it suggests good blood sugar control.
    • If the result is between 39 and 47 mmol/mol, it indicates prediabetes.
    • If the result is 48 mmol/mol or higher on two separate tests, it is diagnostic of diabetes.
