How accurate is a hemoglobin A1c test in indicating hypoglycemia?

Poor: Hba1c is fair at detecting chronically high bgs, but very poor at detecting low bgs. Fortunately, true low bgs are very rare and almost never sustained or recurrent. The sensation of "hypoglycemia", when related to sugar at all in people not treated with diabetes medications, is usually the normal response to low-ish sugars, which corrects them and keeps the body well. ...Read more

Could eating more carbohydrates increase a hemoglobin A1c test in a non-diabetic?

Could eating more carbohydrates increase a hemoglobin A1c test in a non-diabetic?

Probably not...: Your body has an incredible ability to regulate blood sugar levels and when this ability is intact, excess carbs will be converted and stored as fat, thus should not raise your a1c. Once the ability is diseased, the excess carbs/sugar stay as sugar, thus higher blood sugar in diabetic, and will raise your a1c over time. Moderation is key. Live a well-balance life. Live long. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

My hemoglobin A1c was 11.1 on 2/07. Can that be lowered by losing weight and changing my eating habits? Can you get rid of diabetes?

My hemoglobin A1c was 11.1 on 2/07. Can that be lowered by losing weight and changing my eating habits? Can you get rid of diabetes?

Hb of 11.1: A hb a1c means you have a mean glucose of 272. That means it is much higher after meals. I am all for weight loss and exercise. I am also of the opinion that you need to see a endocrinologist and start some medication to get your hb a1c < 7. That should be your first priority. You probably cannot get rid of your diabetes. ...Read more

Blood work: The best way is for you to discuss with the doctor who ordered the test. Anyway, the interpretation will depend on the normal range used at the lab where you had the tests done. In general, here, your white blood cell is mildly low, and you are deficient in vitamin d. Go to see your doctor and discuss in detail, also further evaluation for your low white cell and prescription of vitamin d. ...Read more

Do you fast for a hemoglobin A1c test?

Short answer: The test measures indirectly measures glucose control over the preceding 6-8 weeks. It does not measure sugar directly; therefore I would believe it not to be necessary to fast prior to the test. However, the best way to answer this question is to call the lab where you go to have the blood drawn and ask them directly whether you need to fast for the test. ...Read more

What can cause a high hemoglobin A1c test?

Poor sugar control: Hemoglobin A1c measures average blood sugar over approximately the past 3 months. It is the measure of how much hemoglobin is attached to sugar molecules in the blood. Sugar in your blood binds to the hemoglobin of the red blood cell and stays there throughout the cell's lifetime (120 days). At high levels of blood sugar, more reacts w/ the hemoglobin, causing an elevated hemoglobin a1c. ...Read more

How precise is hemoglobin A1c with indicating hypoglycemia?

Not good at all: Hgb a1c should not be used to assess for hypoglycemic episodes or trends. It indicates only average blood sugars over months, and if there is concern or symptoms of hypoglycemia, then fingerstick blood sugar levels should be checked. Do some random ones, especially at night, and after high demand glucose things like exercise. Also check if having any symptoms - don't drive if you are low! ...Read more

Why do type 1 diabetic patients have to increase their hemoglobin a1c?

Why do type 1 diabetic patients have to increase their hemoglobin a1c?

A1c a control marker: A1c is a long term marker for glucose levels in the body. It will go up to higher levels when the blood sugar levels are above recomended levels and declines when you keep your sugars in a healthy range. Since the sugar level can go up or down dramaticly over less than hour, A1c is a better overall gage of long term control than your test diary (& you can't fudge the value). ...Read more
