This test is for home use monitoring of glycemic control in patients with diabetes.
The percent of A1C in your blood today tells you how well you have been controlling your glucose levels over the past 2-3 months. About 50% of the A1C result is from the past 30 days of glucose levels; about 25% is from the past 30-60 days and about 25% is from the past 60-90 days.*
What does your A1C Number Mean?**
- A1C measures your average blood glucose level over the past 2-3 months.
- For most people with diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that your A1C should be under 7%.
- One point reduction in your A1C reduces risk of serious complications by 40%.***
- Remember that your A1C is your "big picture" measurement. Don't use it for short-term daily blood glucose measurement.
- If you have any questions about your A1C results, please contact your doctor or healthcare provider. Do not adjust your medication unless instructed to do so by your doctor or healthcare provider.
The A1CNow SELFCHECK test is an easy-to-use test to measure your A1C levels at home. By measuring your levels at home, you can be better informed in-between your doctor visits and feel more in control of your diabetes.
