What’s Tested

Measures the average amount of glucose in your blood over an extended period (typically 8-12 weeks).


Hemoglobin A1c, also called A1c or glycated hemoglobin, is hemoglobin with glucose attached. The A1c home test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months by measuring the percentage of glycated hemoglobin in the blood.

This HbA1c (hemoglobin A1c) test collection test can be used to screen for or assess the risk of developing diabetes.

This diabetes home test kit can also be used to monitor treatment for individuals diagnosed with diabetes and help evaluate how well your glucose levels have been controlled by treatment over time. For monitoring purposes, an A1c of less than 7% indicates good glucose control and a lower risk of diabetic complications for most people with diabetes.²

It is recommended that people work closely with their healthcare provider to select a goal that reflects each person's individual health status and that balances personalized risks and benefits.

Your blood sugar acts as an important barometer when it comes to your health, as elevated blood sugar levels over an extended period are often indicative of prediabetes and diabetes: a serious disease that can ultimately affect the health and function of other parts of the body including your nervous system, cardiovascular system, eyes and kidneys.

Hyperglycemia – often called “high blood sugar” – comes with several notable symptoms including³:

  • Blurred vision

  • Fatigue

  • Fluctuating weight 

  • Increased thirst

  • Frequent urination

Like with any at-home test, you can share the results with your healthcare provider. They will help determine what course of action is best, and if lifestyle changes are necessary.

Testing every 3 to 6 months is recommended for anyone concerned about prediabetes. This diabetes test kit is sensitive enough against daily blood sugar fluctuations that any time of day is fine to test, and you don’t need to test on an empty stomach.

Again, as with any at-home test, you should consult your healthcare provider after getting your results. This will help facilitate the development of a health action plan moving forward.
