What Is Hemoglobin?

Hemoglobin is a protein inside your red blood cells. It is the part of the red blood cell that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Hemoglobin also carries glucose, because glucose can stick to all kinds of proteins in your body. Once glucose sticks to hemoglobin, it is stuck there for the life of the red blood cell, about three or four months. The more glucose there is in your blood, the more will end up stuck to the hemoglobin

What Does A1C Measure?

A1C is a measure of the amount of glucose that is stuck to your hemoglobin. Your A1C reading tells you and your healthcare team what your average blood glucose level has been over the last 3 to 4 months.If your average blood glucose has been high for the past few months, then your A1C will be high. You should talk to your healthcare team about your daily blood glucose tests AND your A1C results.
