This panel has the tests described in our Basic Wellness Panel, but with Hemoglobin A1C also measured.
This test is also known as glycated hemoglobin, glycohemoglobin, or A1C. HbA1c is a blood test that measures the percentage of hemoglobin (a protein in red blood cells) that has glucose (sugar) attached to it. It can help diagnose diabetes or prediabetes by showing the average blood sugar level over the past two to three months. It can help monitor how well diabetes is controlled and how effective a given treatment plan is.
