The A1C test gives you a picture of your average blood glucose (blood sugar) control for the past 2 to 3 months. The results give you a good idea of how well your diabetes treatment plan is working.

In some ways, the A1C test is like a baseball player’s season batting average, it tells you about a person’s overall success. Neither a single day’s blood test results nor a single game’s batting record gives the same big picture.

These are some ways the A1C test can help you manage your diabetes:

  • Confirm self glucose blood test.
  • Judge whether a treatment plan is working.
  • Show you how healthy choices can make a difference in diabetes control.
