The HbA1C Test is done to measure the amount of glucose that binds with the haemoglobin. The HbA1C Test is a major diagnostic measure for Diabetes. This test helps to check the average blood glucose level by determining the amount of haemoglobin bound glucose.
The average blood sugar levels over a span of months or weeks can be determined by measuring glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c). It is important for diabetics as high HbA1c, greater risk of developing diabetes-related complications.
To check blood glucose level by measuring haemoglobin bound glucose.
