Why would someone order a Hemoglobin A1c test?

The hemoglobin A1c test is usually ordered by someone who is pre-diabetic or diabetic and they are not sure how regulated their blood sugar is – with dietary methods or with medication.    The hemoglobin A1c test provides the average blood sugar during the previous 8-12 weeks.  The higher the amount of blood glucose the higher amount of hemoglobin A1c.   If your blood sugar is regulated correctly, you will receive values below the threshold.   If they are higher, you need to check with your doctor on more ways to reduce your blood sugar.

What are the dangers of uncontrolled blood sugar?
