If you know your HbA1c value it can be converted to your blood sugar value. Glucose levels fluctuate from minute to minute, hour to hour, and day to day. Thus for hour to hour control, or day to day, a glucose level is the best guide. The HbA1C level changes slowly, over 10 weeks, so it can be used as a 'quality control' test. In diabetes glucoses tend to rise more than usual, dropping with exercise, rising after food, rising a lot more after high glycemic food, and can make it hard to control.
Enter your HbA1c Number and press the calculate button:
|Below are two examples of people who have their HbA1c measured. One is poorly controlled, one well controlled.|
|A graph of glucose changes over 9 weeks. The glucose (green line) changes between 7-12. This results in an HbA1c level of 10% at the end of the 9 weeks (red line). Poorly controlled.|
|Here the glucose changes between 5-9. This results in an HbA1c level of 7% at the end of the 9 weeks. Well controlled.|
