Blood Glucose

Glycated hemoglobin is a form of hemoglobin that is measured primarily to identify the three-month average plasma glucose concentration. The test is limited to a three-month average because the lifespan of a red blood cell is four months. Also know as HgbA1C.

    Glycated hemoglobin HgbA1C (total glycohemoglobin) is a clinically useful tool in assessing glycemic control in diabetes mellitus as it reflects blood glucose levels over the circulatory half-life of the red blood cell (about 60 days).
