Hemoglobin a1c (HbA1c) Test Kit is designed to test for Hemoglobin A1c and  accurately assesses hemoglobin a1c levels in the blood

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is a glycated form of hemoglobin that results from the binding of hemoglobin in red blood cells to glucose in the bloodstream. Once the hemoglobin has bound to glucose, it remains glycated. Circulating red blood cells have a lifespan of 120 days, therefore the amount of HbA1c at any time point reflects the average exposure of red blood cells to glucose over the previous 3 months. It can therefore indicate impaired glucose tolerance even when occasional fasting plasma glucose measurements are normal.

Symptoms include:

  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Fast, irregular heartbeat
  • Pounding in the ears
  • Headache
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Pale or yellow skin
