Diabetes: Glycated Hemoglobin Test (HbA1c)

Your pharmacist owner affiliated to the Brunet network is happy to provide you with health services tailored to your needs.

To ensure the effectiveness of a diabetic treatment or to make a diagnosis of diabetes, your doctor will ask you to take a blood test to obtain a value called glycated hemoglobin. 

For those already receiving treatment, this value reflects the control of diabetes over the previous 3 months and lets the physician know if an adjustment in medication is required. 

For those not treated, the value is used to determine whether a treatment is to start. 

The nurse practicing at your Brunet affiliated pharmacy may perform this blood test and transfer the result to the attending health professional for interpretation.
