Diabetes Report Card: Hgb A1C

What is A1C?

Hgb A1C or glycosylated hemoglobin, is a two to three month average of your blood glucose (sugar) level. It measures the amount of glucose that attaches to the red blood cells (RBC). Because RBC's live about three months, the A1C test shows your average blood glucose level during that time.
