Back to Ask the Diabetes Team A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c

A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c from 2003

  1. I check my blood sugar regularly several times a day and get acceptable readings. I cannot get my A1c level down below 10. (13 Dec 2003)
  2. I have lost a great deal of blood and I am anemic. Could that be causing this very aberrant A1c result? (7 Dec 2003)
  3. We have the chart that converts the A1C to the correlating cbg reading, but we would like to know the formula that calculates the conversion. (7 Dec 2003)
  4. Can a hemoglobin A1c be done on a one month old? (9 Nov 2003)
  5. Do you feel that the home A1c tests will portray an accurate result? (19 Oct 2003)
  6. I was confused that my son's A1c dropped 2% six weeks after diagnosis, but only 0.3% after three months of good blood sugars. (13 Oct 2003)
  7. Is there something wrong with an A1c around 4.5%? Is an average blood glucose around 80 mg/dl [4.4 mmol/L] too low? (17 Sep 2003)
  8. Could there be other factors that resulted in my high A1c results that I should be investigating? (2 Sep 2003)
  9. Will the thalassemia and microcytosis affect the accuracy of the results of the automated A1c testing? (15 Aug 2003)
  10. My son has been diagnosed for four months now and has not had an A1c test. How critical is it? (27 Jun 2003)
  11. If a normal, healthy person who does not have diabetes had an A1c tested, what would it likely be? (18 Jun 2003)
  12. The lab the tech refused to draw blood because she said that the A1c requires fasting, and my daughter had just finished her snack. Is this true? (7 Apr 2003)
  13. My glucose levels at home are always well above where they should, but my A1c is always well within range. (15 Jan 2003)
  14. Are there any other possibilities that will produce high A1c numbers? (10 Jan 2003)
  15. The averages from my son's meter show that his A1c should be at the level we are attempting to achieve, but his A1cs are much higher. (8 Jan 2003)
