A1C and Type 2 Diabetes

A1C is a simple blood test, done with an easy finger prick, that measures a person’s average blood glucose (blood sugar) level over the past two or three months. Individuals living with type 2 diabetes are encouraged to get an A1C test at least twice a year, more often if your medicine changes or if you have other health conditions. Ask your health care team about how often is right for you.
