This home test checks your levels of Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). This biomarker is used to confi rm whether you have (or are at risk of developing) diabetes. It is a potentially life-saving test and it is quite common for people to have diabetes and not know about it. Unmanaged or undiagnosed diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality. For anyone who already knows they have diabetes, regular HbA1c checks are essential to monitor progress.

A high Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is used by doctors to diagnose diabetes. It is particularly useful because it gives an indication of how often you have had abnormally high blood glucose levels over the previous 3 months – rather than a glucose test which only shows your level at a single point in time.
