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
