What does your A1C number mean?*
* A1C measures your average blood glucose level over the past 2-3 months.
* For most people with diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that your A1C should be under 7%.
* A 1% point reduction in A1C lowers the risk of serious complications by 40%.**
* Remember that your A1C is your big picture measurement. Don't use it for daily blood glucose measurement.
* If you have any questions about your A1C result, please contact your doctor or healthcare provider. Do not adjust your medication unless instructed to do so by your doctor or healthcare provider.
This test is for home use monitoring of glycemic control in patients with diabetes.
