How to check your Glycated Haemoglobin levels with a home finger-prick blood test kit

What Is A Glycated Haemoglobin Test For?

A Glycated Haemoglobin test is also known as a Haemoglobin A1c or Glycosylated haemoglobin test.

HbA1c is a type of haemoglobin that forms naturally in the body, when sugars bind with haemoglobin in the blood.

This process happens slowly so the test indicates your average blood sugar levels over the last 2 to 3 months.

This will illustrate if your blood sugar levels are staying within the optimum range and indicate your risk of developing diabetes.

What If Glycated Haemoglobin Test Levels Are High?

What If Glycated Haemoglobin Test Levels Are High?

A high HbA1c means you have too much sugar in your blood. A level between 42 and 47 mmol/mol suggests a high risk of developing diabetes, with a result of over 48 mmol/mol indicating that diabetes has likely already developed.

Note that if you are aware that you have diabetes, and your HbA1c is below the target of 48 mmol/mol it is likely that your diabetes is well controlled.

HbA1c is a continuous risk factor for type 2 diabetes - this means there is no fixed point when you are (or are not) at risk. As such, while the 'high risk' of developing diabetes starts at 42 mmol/mol, it is advisable to maintain your blood level as low as possible within the normal range.

The best way to lower your blood sugar levels is through balanced, healthy eating and having a more active lifestyle or fitness program. We advise testing every three months if you wish to monitor your progress.

What If Glycated Haemoglobin Test Levels Are Low?

What If Glycated Haemoglobin Test Levels Are Low?

Having low HbA1c levels although preferred from a blood sugar control perspective, can result due to excess alcohol consumption, liver disease, certain genetic blood disorders, and where red blood cell levels are low. 

If you have an abnormal type of haemoglobin, for example if you suffer from sickle cell disease, this can also cause low HbA1c results.

If you have haemolysis or heavy bleeding, your test results may also be falsely low.

This requires further investigation to determine the cause.

Why Take The Glycated Haemoglobin Test?

Our Diabetes home blood test kit checks how well your body has managed blood sugar levels over the last 2 - 3 months by measuring HbA1c, which indicates your risk from diabetes. 

Too much sugar in your blood damages blood vessels and can lead to serious problems. The most common cause is Type 2 diabetes, a serious, lifelong condition.

Making positive lifestyle changes can significantly reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Lowering your HbA1c level is the best gauge of risk reduction.

Take control of your health without any of the inconvenience of going to the doctors with one of Vitall’s at-home blood tests.
