Glucose – HbA1c

Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) develops when haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming ‘glycated’. For patients especially those with diabetes, this is an important marker as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications. In Australia it is said that 1-4 Australians over the age of 25 have pre-diabetes.
