The HbA1c blood test measures your average level of blood sugar over the past 90 days. It is also called glycated haemoglobin because most monosaccharides (simple sugars), such as glucose and fructose, spontaneously bond with the haemoglobin to ‘glycate’. The higher the glucose levels in the blood, the more it sticks to or binds with the haemoglobin, and the higher is glycated haemoglobin or HbA1c level in the blood.
One of the reasons why the HbA1c test is done is to know whether a person is prediabetic or prone to diabetes. Accordingly, the person can take appropriate action to prevent diabetes to a certain extent; this includes measures like reducing fat and sugar intake, exercising regularly, and losing weight .
