Service Description

Getting an A1c test and understanding its results An A1c test requires either a blood draw or a finger prick and is often done at a doctor’s office or lab A healthy range for A1c results can vary from person to person—a doctor or healthcare professional should help you understand what A1c range is right for you.  The following guidelines from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases can help you understand what A1c results may mean:4  Below 5.7%—usually normal for a nondiabetic person  Between 5.7% and 6.4%—possible sign of prediabetes  Above 6.5%—may indicate diabetes  Above 8%—could mean the diabetes is not well-controlled Sometimes you can get a false result. Things like iron deficiency anemia can give a false high A1c result, or a recent blood transfusion can create a false low result. How often should A1c be tested? The A1c test measures average blood sugar levels over several months, so the test isn’t normally done weekly or even monthly.  If you are concerned about managing diabetes, you should talk to your doctor about how often to test. According to the Mayo Clinic, A1c testing should be done:  Once every 3 years for people who do not have diabetes but are over 45 years old, overweight or have other risk factors for diabetes  Once a year for people diagnosed with prediabetes  Twice a year for people who have type 2 diabetes but do not take insulin and usually keep their blood sugar under control  4 times a year for people with type 2 diabetes who take insulin and struggle to keep their blood sugar under control  4 times a year for people with type 1 diabetes  Sometimes more than 4 times a year if medication or treatment plans are changing
