An A1c screening helps you understand how well your blood sugar has been controlled over a period of time. Blood sugar values fluctuate over the course of a day or week, so an A1c gives you a picture of your average blood sugar over the past three months.
It is important to make sure your blood pressure is within target range/at the goal you and your doctor have discussed to prevent complications such as heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and heart failure.
Blood Cholesterol is a normal part of your blood and cells, and an important part of a healthy body. You get cholesterol in two ways: your body makes some of it, and the rest is made from the foods you eat. How much your body produces plus what you eat makes a difference in your health.
Blood glucose, also known as blood sugar, is the amount of glucose in your blood and important for everyone as a source of energy. When carbohydrate-containing foods are eaten, your body breaks them down into glucose, using it for energy. While everyone has blood glucose, people with diabetes have a different way of managing it with lifestyle choices to keep their levels within target range.
