The HbA1c blood test provides a snapshot of your average blood glucose control over the past three months, offering valuable insights into your risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes. This test is particularly beneficial for individuals over 45, those with a family history of type 2 diabetes, or those with medical conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, PCOS, or high cholesterol. By monitoring HbA1c levels regularly, individuals can assess their diabetes risk and take proactive steps towards managing their health.

HbA1c, or glycated haemoglobin, reflects the amount of glucose bound to red blood cells over a 2-3 month period. For individuals with diabetes, maintaining an HbA1c level below 48mmol/mol (6.5%) is considered ideal, while those at risk of type 2 diabetes should aim for levels below 42mmol/mol (6%). Understanding HbA1c levels is crucial for preventing diabetes complications and reducing the risk of serious health issues. Regular monitoring and management of HbA1c levels through lifestyle modifications and medical intervention are essential for maintaining optimal health and minimizing diabetes-related complications.
