What is HbA1c

The HbA1c (or A1C) test is used to diagnose pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

HbA1c (or A1C) test result targets vary by age, diabetes diagnosis, and other risk factors. InĀ general, theĀ CDCĀ interprets an A1C level as:

- Normal: 5.6% and below

- Pre-diabetic: 5.7% to 6.4%

- Diabetic: 6.5% and above.

The HbA1c (or A1C) test measures the amount of haemoglobin in the blood that has become glycated (chemically bonded with glucose). Internationally it is common to use a percentage score such as the one you will see displayed in your home test kit. This can be easily translated into the mmols/mol number more commonly used in New Zealand by downloading the conversion table below.

Study results with healthcare professionals showed that the accuracy of A1CNow with fingerstick samples was, on average, 99%. This means that, on average, a true 7.0% A1C could read approximately 6.9% A1C. An individual A1CNow result may differ by as much as -1.0% A1C to +0.8% A1C from the true result. This represents the 95% confidence limits of a Bland-Altman plot.

Yes, each kit contains 4 test cartridges and finger kits. It is up to you whether you use them all yourself (to keep track of your scores quarterly for example); alternatively or you could elect to use them to test up to four people, just the one time each.

The HbA1c test involves taking a sample of blood from your finger ItĀ can beĀ done at any time of the day. It doesn'tĀ matter whether you have eaten or not. Our test kits contain detailed information on how to test correctly.

Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) is a complex, progressive and chronic disease caused by insufficient production of insulin and/or resistance to insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas. It promotes
the uptake of glucose from the blood stream into the cells, where it is then metabolised as an energy source.
When there is insufficient production of insulin and/or the body resists insulin, blood glucose levels become too
high and type 2 diabetes can occur.

There are multiple types of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a largely preventable and reversible form that develops through age and weight gain in genetically susceptible people, when both the cells become
resistant to insulin and the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin. As discussed above, insufficient insulin
and/or a lack of response to insulin by the body's cells, leads to high blood glucose levels, which causes damage to blood vessels over time. Early symptoms of type 2 diabetes can easily go unnoticed and typically include fatigue, excessive thirst, frequent urination, frequent infections, hunger, and blurred vision. Diagnosis can be made through a blood test which measures the average glycated haemoglobin (HbAIC) content of the blood over a two to three-month period.

If type 2 diabetes is not managed, long-term damage of blood vessels can lead to more serious complications such as heart and blood vessel disease, nerve damage (which can eventually lead to
amputation), kidney damage, eye damage, slow healing, hearing impairment, skin conditions, sleep apnea and
Alzheimer's disease". Maintaining blood glucose levels within the normal range can help to prevent these
complications from developing.
