What this Test measures
HbA1c measures the average amount of glucose in your blood over the past 90 days. It shows the amount of glucose attached to hemoglobin (which is the part of your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body). It’s used to help detect and diagnose prediabetes and diabetes. If you have diabetes, measuring your HbA1c levels routinely will help you and your doctor manage the disease.
High HbA1c levels may indicate you have diabetes, or are prediabetic. High HbA1c levels might indicate anemia, liver disease, kidney failure and sickle cell disease.
- Increased thirst
- Increased urination
- Blurred vision
Low HbA1c levels can be caused by conditions that decrease red blood cell levels, such as alcohol, liver disease, genetic disorders and some drugs and supplements.
- Severe cases may lead to seizures and loss of consciousness

Questions? We Have Answers.
No, you do not need to fast before getting an HbA1c test.
MLD’s Diabetic Risk At Home test results will provide detailed information regarding your HbA1c levels. An HbA1c test result is reported as a percentage – this number represents the portion of hemoglobin proteins that are holding glucose. The higher the percentage, the higher your blood sugar levels have been over the last 90 days.
Please prepare to test first thing in the morning. Be sure to drink plenty of water before testing! Being well hydrated will help increase blood flow and improve the testing experience.
*Note: Do not test on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday. Your sample must be picked up, dropped at a dropbox location or brought to FedEx on the same day you test.
Your results can be easily shared with your healthcare provider, and in fact, we encourage you to share your data in order to obtain the treatment you might need. Contact us for a network of healthcare providers that specialize in treating diabetes and nutritional deficiencies.
