The Diabetes Home Screen (also known as a HbA1c test) is the recommended test for pre-diabetes and diabetes. The test reflects your average blood sugar level over the preceding 12 weeks (the average life span of a red blood cell). Higher HBA1c readings correlate with higher blood sugar levels.
A HBA1c level of less than 42mmol/mol is considered normal and a level of 48mmol/mol or more is suggestive of diabetes. If your HBA1vc is 42mmol/mol or higher this suggests that you are pre-diabetic and that your risk of developing diabetes over the next 3 years is considerably increased.
We often find that people can lower their HBA1c level through dietary improvement (less starchy carbs and sugars) and weight loss
