Glycated/Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) test checks your average blood sugar level in the past 3 months. HbA1c is formed as a result of binding of glucose with hemoglobin present in red blood cells. If there is an increase in the glucose level, more HbA1c will be formed. Normally, 4 to 6 red blood cells in 100 have glucose attached to their surface; hence the range of HbA1c in a normal person is 4 to 6%. Higher values of HbA1c increase the risk of diseases related to heart, kidney, nerve, brain and eye.
