Health Status Outcomes for Diabetes Hemoglobin A1C Tests

Health Status Outcomes

Tight control of A1C levels (i.e., maintaining a level of less than 7%) has been shown to be associated with substantial reductions in kidney disease and blindness among people with diabetes. Regular A1C exams can help people with diabetes maintain better blood sugar control. Regular A1C exams can lead to early detection and treatment for poor blood sugar control and help prevent complications.
