HbA1c (Glycated Hemoglobin)
The amount of glucose that combines with this protein is directly proportional to the total amount of sugar that is in your system at that time. Because red blood cells in the human body survive for 8-12 weeks before renewal, measuring glycated haemoglobin (or HbA1c) can be used to reflect average blood glucose levels over that duration, providing a useful longer-term gauge of blood glucose control.
Note: If your blood sugar levels have been high in recent weeks, your HbA1c will also be greater.
