The Diabetes Management Test measures your glucose and hemoglobin A1c levels. The glucose test measures your blood sugar level at the time of testing and will identify high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). The hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test measures your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months.
If you're living with diabetes, these tests will help you and your healthcare provider monitor your blood sugar levels. An elevated glucose level means that your blood sugar levels are high at the time of testing. Abnormal blood glucose levels may be a sign of a serious medical condition. HbA1c testing can help you and your healthcare provider know how well you're managing your blood sugar levels over time. An elevated A1c level means that your average blood sugar levels have been high over the past 3 months.

Type 1 diabetes is believed to be caused by an autoimmune reaction when the body mistakenly attacks itself. During this reaction, beta cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin, are destroyed. Currently, there is no known prevention for type 1 diabetes. This type of diabetes is usually diagnosed in children but can develop later.
Type 2 diabetes is more common in older people, but it can affect people of all ages. In most people with type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces insulin but the body cannot use it effectively. Insulin resistance, or impaired insulin sensitivity, is a precursor to diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed by maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, and exercising regularly.
