The Hemoglobin A1c (A1C) test measures the average level of blood glucose over a three-month period for persons with diabetes.
Because blood glucose can fluctuate significantly and levels may be affected by illness or stress, the A1C test provides a
much more accurate picture of a patient's blood glucose level than tests which measure levels at one point in time.
