What will it help you with?

Haemoglobin is a protein component of the red blood cell and carries oxygen around the body. When haemoglobin joins with glucose it becomes glycated to form glycated haemoglobin A (HbA1c or A1c). HbA1c or A1c tests can measure the level of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) in your blood over a period of 8 – 12 weeks, which provides useful information on glucose control.


HBA1c provides a longer-term trend, similar to an average, of how high your blood sugar levels have been over a period of time. This is measured using a fasting plasma glucose test, which can be carried out using blood taken from a finger or can be taken from a blood sample from the arm.However, fasting glucose tests provide an indication of your current glucose levels only, whereas the HbA1c test serves as an overall marker of what your average levels are over a period of 2-3 months.


For most people with diabetes, the HbA1c target is below 6.5 per cent, since evidence shows that this can reduce the risk of developing diabetic complications, such as nerve damage, eye disease, kidney disease and heart disease.


Individuals at risk of severe hypoglycaemia should aim for an HbA1c of less than 7.5 per cent. However, any reduction in HbA1c levels (and therefore, any improvement in control), is still considered to have beneficial effects on the onset and progression of complications.

Results are displayed in 5 Mintes from a small portable single use test device from small finger prick sample of blood. No maintenance affordable to use and accuracte.

Accuracy studies were conducted with 189 subjects with and without diabetes across three US sites. Fingerstick sampling was performed on each subject for testing with A1CNow+, and venous blood was collected from each subject for comparative testing using an NGSP-certified method. A1CNow+ results were compared to the NGSP reference results.

The results showed that the accuracy of A1CNow+, with fingerstick samples was, on average, 99%.

Customer Reviews
David Hughes
David Hughes, 62, is a retired teacher from Truro in Cornwall. He was diagnosed with Type II diabetes in 2004. ‘It was a shock to be diagnosed with Type II diabetes. I was reasonably fit and active, six foot one inches tall and weighed around twelve stone. ‘I didn’t have a sweet tooth, I had no family history of the condition and no real symptoms apart from tiredness. ‘In fact, if I hadn’t been in hospital for another completely separate health issue, I might not have been diagnosed for several years. ‘Once I was diagnosed I was determined to do as much as possible to self-manage my condition through diet and exercise. ‘I currently take Metformin and Gliclazide, but I also monitor my blood glucose levels daily, sometimes several times a day, always before I drive, and, if my glucose levels are too high, I will try to reduce it by taking more exercise and cutting out carbohydrates. ‘I have recently started exploring the Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) dietary regime with some success. ‘I have my HbA1c levels monitored at my diabetes clinic every six months or so and I understand that the test provides a reading of my long term blood glucose levels over the previous two to three months. ‘Clinicians use it because it is more accurate than a daily reading which I believe can fluctuate wildly. ‘I think self-management is extremely important for people with diabetes, not least because it gives us some control over our condition. ‘Being able to monitor my HbA1c levels every three months at home with the ‘A1cNow’ monitor means that I can keep an even closer eye on my long term diabetes condition allowing me to make informed decisions about diet, exercise and my medication. ‘The HbA1c provides me with clinical standard information and confidence that my diabetes is under control, or if not, will ensure that I get the help I need as early as possible.’

Answered Questions

Name: Andrew
Q: Is the A1C kit reusable and do you sell the test cartridges and lancets separately to enable reuse?
A:

No - The A1C Now Package includes 2 Tests and is disposable after use. Considering it is advised to take a HbA1C Test every 3-6 months it has been designed so you don't need test cartridges. We recommend normal Lancets for finger prick such as Glucorx Sterile Lancets
