This test measures the level of sugar in our red blood cells, with results given as a percentage. As red blood cells have a life of around 3 months, this test shows the average blood sugar over the last few months and is therefore not affected by short-term dietary changes.
It is currently regarded as the ‘gold standard’ for diagnosing diabetes (type 2), identifying those at risk of diabetes (pre-diabetes) and for monitoring sugar control in those with known diabetes.
The test is suitable for the vast majority of people, but those with a different type of haemoglobin (Hb variant) in their blood, may need a different test, such as our Glucose Tolerance Test or Fasting glucose.
