How Zinzino HbA1c Test Works?
The test consists of two main parts.
Step 1 of HbA1c Test
The first phase involves a dried blood spot technique where you prick your finger with the provided single-use lancet and pour 1-2 drops in the circled areas of the sample card. Once the blood spots dry up, insert them in the envelope and mail them to the VITAS Analytical Services in Norway for analysis.
Step 2 of HbA1c Test
The second step of the Zinzino HbA1c Test involves registering on www.zinzinotest.com using your unique test ID and filling out a lifestyle assessment questionnaire. This phase establishes how your diet and daily activities affect aspects like the gut, brain, immune function, metabolism, bones, joints, risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and overall health status.

What We Measure
The Hemoglobin A1c test that we are using to measure the long-term blood sugar level is a measurement of the amount of A1c hemoglobin proteins that have glucose attached. The higher the amount of blood glucose (blood sugar) on average, the more glucose there is attached. It is represented as a unit of measurement in mmol/mol (millimoles per mole) which has been the standard measurement for blood sugar levels since 2009. The result is then categorized in one of 4 different categories:
Normal range …………………… < 34 mmol/mol
Monitor closely range … 34 – < 38 mmol/mol
Prediabetic range ………. 38 – < 47 mmol/mol
Diabetic range ………………….. > 47 mmol/mol
