What is HBA1C?
HbA1c is your average blood glucose (sugar) levels for the last two to three months. If you have diabetes, an ideal HbA1c level is 48mmol/mol (6.5%) or below.
If you’re at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, your target HbA1c level should be below 42mmol/mol (6%).
On this page we’ll go through what HbA1c means, and why aiming for your target level is so important. We’ll also explain the HbA1c test in more detail, and show you what you can do to lower your HbA1c levels if they’re too high. Plus, you can use our HbA1c converter tool if you’re looking to find out your level in % or mmol/mol.
