A1C Now Standards of Care

By Samuel Kolodney 3 years ago 2220 Views No comments

HbA1c testing is a useful way to determine a patient’s average blood glucose level. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends A1C testing to monitor a patient's ability to control their blood sugar. The A1c test should be performed quarterly on patients who are not meeting their target blood sugar levels. For patients who have diabetes and are meeting their glycemic targets, the A1c test should be performed semi-annually. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, American Diabetes Association and International Diabetes Federation, have published guidelines regarding the frequency of A1C testing, which are condensed in the chart below.
