Description

The Hgb A1c with eAG Estimation is a blood test used to assess an individual’s health. It measures the average amount of sugar (glucose) in the red blood cells over a period of 3 months, showing how well diabetes has been managed. A high level of sugar in the blood can damage organs, so this test is an important tool for doctors to evaluate an individual’s overall health. It can also be used to help diagnose, monitor, and treat diabetes. With this blood test, doctors can assess how an individual’s blood sugar has changed over time, and if their diabetes is being well-controlled. Furthermore, the test results can be used to make treatment decisions and adjust medication doses when needed. Additionally, the eAG estimation provides information on how well medication is working and adjusted as needed.
