Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C)
Item Catalog Number: LC001453
Hemoglobin A1C evaluates long-term blood sugar control. Serum glucose sometimes reacts with important proteins in the body rendering them nonfunctional. This process is called glycation. Hemoglobin A1C is a reflection of this detrimental reaction.
Doctors often follow this blood test in diabetics to monitor disease progression and the effects of treatment. However, because glycation is one of the leading theories of aging, Life Extension® believes everyone should check their A1C level.
This test does not require fasting. Take all prescription medications as prescribed … but do not take your supplements the morning of the test.
