Haemoglobin is a protein component of the red blood cell and carries oxygen around the body. When haemoglobin joins with glucose it becomes glycated to form glycated haemoglobin A (HbA1c or A1c). HbA1c or A1c tests can measure the level of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) in your blood over a period of 8 – 12 weeks, which provides useful information on glucose control.
This measurement can be beneficial in general health checks, directing you to seek appropriate medical advice if needed, or used to check and monitor you if you are diabetic. A1c Now® SELF CHECK is easy to use, quick, efficient, and accurate measuring HbA1C in 5 minutes from a single drop of blood.
Portable and compact, the device can be used anywhere at any time, you can even measure your A1c levels in the comfort of your own home! There is no need for any special diets or fasting, and all you need to perform the test(s) are provided in the kit. No additional equipment is needed.
