According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the A1C test is a simple blood test that measures your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months. It is one of the commonly used tests to diagnose prediabetes and diabetes. When sugar enters your bloodstream, it attaches to hemoglobin, a protein in your red blood cells. Everybody has some sugar attached to their hemoglobin, but people with higher blood sugar levels have more. The A1C test measures the percentage of your red blood cells that have sugar-coated hemoglobin.
