Assess Your Progress Regularly

An A1C is a simple blood test that can be performed any time of the day and does not require fasting. An A1C test kit can be used in an outpatient lab setting, a physician's office, or in the privacy of your own home (with an at-home kit). We offer several A1C tests that will allow you to see your average blood sugars over a 2 to 3-month time frame. The blood test measures how much hemoglobin (a protein found in red blood cells that carries oxygen) is covered in sugar.

At-home A1C tests are valuable to have on hand. An A1C test kit allows you to test your average blood glucose levels every three months to better understand how much control you have over your health. These regular A1C home tests will alert you if your blood sugar levels are out of control and make it easier for you to make the changes needed to avoid any potentially severe diabetes complications in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the common steps to use an at-home A1C test kit?

  1. Store the kit at room temperature away from heat and humidity or results may be inaccurate.
  2. Check the box to confirm that the test is within the expiration date. Your results can be inaccurate if it's expired.
  3. There are several home kits available on the market. Read and follow the directions for that specific kit for best results.
  4. Most A1C kits come with two diabetes test strips. Check to see if you need to refrigerate the second strip until future testing use.
  5. Wash your hands with warm, soapy water and thoroughly dry your hands before using the A1C test kit.
  6. Place the droplet of blood from the side of your finger onto the inserted strip. Make sure you use enough blood, or your screen will read "error."
  7. Document your results and share them with your diabetes care team to enhance your present treatment plan.

What should the A1C range be?

  1. Normal range: 4.5% - 5.6%
  2. Pre-diabetes range: 5.7% - 6.4%
  3. Diabetes range: 6.5% or above
  4. Controlled diabetes: This range should be discussed with your healthcare professionals.

The A1C value shown on your A1C home test should be based on your age, overall life expectancy, overall health, life quality, existing complications, and risk of hypoglycemia. Your healthcare professional can provide clarification if you have questions about the A1C test kit results.

The ADA suggests keeping your A1C as close to 7% or below, and the AACE suggests keeping it under 6.5%. Follow your own healthcare professional's recommendations, especially if you have a heart condition.

What are some tips to help lower A1C levels?

  • Exercise daily, especially 30 minutes after your meal.
  • Follow a healthy, whole-food, portion-controlled diet. Don't skip meals.
  • Take your medications properly and on time.
  • Monitor your daily blood glucose at times suggested by your diabetes team.
  • Work with your diabetes care team to meet goals.

Can I use at-home tests instead of lab tests?

While they're more affordable and provide immediate results, an A1C test kit may not be as accurate as a lab test. At-home test kits simply allow you to get an idea of where your blood glucose levels are and how you're progressing. When you need more detailed, accurate information, you should schedule an appointment with your healthcare professional, generally every 3-6 months.
