A1c testing and calculating a1c
Your estimated A1c is 6.15% then your blood glucose level in the last 3 months is 7.2 mmol/L (130 mg/dL). There’re cheaper devices you can buy to allow you to conduct an actual A1c test yourself. Doing these tests often, like monthly, then it could save you lab test money in the long run.
