Hi Anonymous,

The A1C test is a blood test that provides information about a person’s average levels of blood glucose, also called blood sugar, over the past 3 months. The A1C test is sometimes called the hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, or glycohemoglobin test. The A1C test is the primary test used for diabetes management and diabetes research.

A hemoglobin A1c of 6.5% or higher is considered to be diagnostic of diabetes. If A1c is less than or equal to 5.6% that is considered non-diabetes range; and an A1c between 5.7% and 6.4% is considered to be in the pre-diabetes range when diagnosing diabetes.
