# Glycosylated HbA1C

This test can measure the amount of glycosylated hemoglobin in the blood. Hemoglobin is a substance in RBCs that carry oxygen to tissues, and can also attach sugar in the blood-forming a substance called glycosylated hemoglobin (also called glycated hemoglobin or hemoglobin A₁C). The glycosylated hemoglobin shows what the patient’s blood glucose levels were before 2 to 3 months before the test and hence can determine how well the patient’s diabetes is being controlled over a period of time.

Glycosylated HbAC - This test is also called Glyco-haemoglobin / glycated-haemoglobin or Haemoglobin AC. This test evaluates the average blood sugar of hemoglobin in 2-3 months. This test is performed for diagnosing PRE-DIABETES in adults, prognosis during follow-up of medication in diabetic patients.


This test is usually done to monitor the treatment in the patient (compliance – if the patient is regularly taking the drug) and the efficacy of the drug to diabetes treatment. This test is recommended in diabetic patients since this gives an indication of overall control of blood glucose levels over a period of 8 to 12 weeks. Hence raised levels of HbA1C indicates an increased risk of developing complications of diabetes like diabetic retinopathy. Hence high levels of glycosylated hemoglobin reflect high blood sugar levels and thus the patient is more likely to develop diabetes complications in the end organs such as eyes, feet, kidneys, etc. Other associated tests include affinity chromatography, immune assay, ion exchange and/or high-performance liquid chromatography, boronate affinity HPLC and enzymatic methods.
