About the Test

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.
