What is the Hba1c Test?
HbA1C test or glycated hemoglobin test can tell you whether you are prediabetic.
Diabetes is becoming the biggest health problem in India. So many Indians are diabetic that India is being referred to as the diabetes capital of the world.
Over 6 crore people in India are expected to be diabetic. Diabetes can severely impact the quality of life of any individual by leading to various diseases including kidney dysfunction.
The good thing though is that if you know about the probability of diabetes onset early, you can delay it by over 5 years through proper lifestyle intervention. Before anyone becomes a full diabetic, the prediabetic stage occurs.
What are the symptoms of diabetes?
People who show the following predisposition may be diabetic or prediabetic:
- High blood pressure
- Blurry vision
- Weight gain or loss
- Excessive thirst
- Family history of diabetes
Anyone above the age of 35 should get tested once a year irrespective of the above symptoms. Patients who have been diagnosed pre-diabetic should get the HbA1c test done twice a year.
Patients who are diabetic should use the HbA1c test quarterly along with regular monitoring of sugar levels. Proper testing along with food and lifestyle management can help you delay the bad aspects of diabetes for many years.
What is the Procedure of the Hba1c Test?
Hba1c is a simple blood test. There are no special preparations required for the test. A lab assistant will tie a tight band around your arm to make the veins more visible. Then a needle will be injected into the vein to draw the blood sample.
After removing the needle, cotton will be placed on the puncture site to stop the bleeding. The collected blood sample will be then tested by a pathologist.
What do the Hba1c results mean?
The normal range of Hba1c level is between 4% and 5.6%. If the levels are higher than the normal range, then it indicates a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The high blood sugar level may lead to several medical complications if left untreated. A few of the complications are
- Problems in the feet
- Heart disease
- Erectile dysfunction
- Kidney disease
In some cases, the Hba1c test may show elevated test results due to various factors such as anemia, high cholesterol levels, kidney or liver disease, etc. So your doctor may order additional tests to rule out diabetes.
