glycosylated hemoglobin test (hemoglobin A1c)

You'll see the glycosylated hemoglobin test (hemoglobin A1c) used more often for Type II diabetes. So far, it has primarily been used just to monitor patients who use insulin.

Using the glycosylated hemoglobin test to get a picture of blood sugar control over the last several months is more useful than knowing a fasting or random blood sugar on day of the test.

Check a glycosylated hemoglobin test four times a year for patients using insulin...at least twice a year for all other diabetics.
