Here at Kirill Zhadovich, MD, SC, we are proud to perform HbA1c testing services to our patients. This test helps to measure the amount of glucose attached to your hemoglobin, which is important information when diagnosing and treating diabetes in adults.
It is important to note that HbA1c testing is not used to diagnose diabetes in children or in pregnant women (gestational diabetes).
If you display symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, fatigue, or blurred vision, you may need HbA1c testing to help diagnose diabetes or prediabetes. Your doctor may recommend testing if you have one or more of the following risk factors:
- History of heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Physical inactivity
This testing can be done with a blood sample that can be taken in our office. Unlike many other blood tests, there is no preparation needed for HbA1c testing.
