Hemoglobin A1C Blood Test

without eAG


Test Code: 001453
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Hemoglobin A1C Blood Test

Hemoglobin A1C test is used to measure glucose in the blood in the last 2-3 months. It can also be used to screen for or aid in the diagnosis of diabetes.

Hemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells that helps to carry oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body. Sugars such as glucose link up with hemoglobin molecules causing them to become glycated. A Hemoglobin A1C test provides a measurement of a person's average blood glucose levels over the past 2-3 months by determining the percentage of their hemoglobin that is glycated.

This test is typically ordered when someone is monitoring their ability to control their blood sugar. Your doctor may recommend having the Hemoglobin A1C test two to four times per year to monitor treatment. It is also useful as a periodic screening to assess a person's risk for developing Diabetes.

This test measures A1C only.  We also offer a Hemoglobin A1C with eAG test which includes a measurement for estimated average glucose.  EAG is a measurement that indicates a person's average daily blood sugar level. EAG is reported in the same units a person with Diabetes would see from the glucose meter they use to measure their own blood sugar. 

Turnaround time for the Hemoglobin A1C test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
