Health Tip: Learn About the A1C Test

It helps monitor blood sugar over time

(HealthDay News) -- An A1C test is commonly performed on people with diabetes as a way to help monitor a person's blood sugar over time.

The labtestsonline.org website says doctors may order this test because:

  • It can indicate whether your current treatment plan is adequately controlling diabetes.
  • It may show that your insulin dose needs to be adjusted.
  • It may help newly diagnosed diabetics learn to monitor blood glucose.
  • It may be used initially to screen for diabetes.
