¿Deseas información sobre el análisis de A1C?

Un análisis de A1C mide el azúcar en la sangre o nivel de glucosa promedio durante los últimos 2 a 3 meses. Cuando controlas el azúcar en la sangre con un medidor después de ayunar y antes o después de las comidas, no capturas todos los altibajos. El análisis requiere una pequeña muestra de sangre. Haz clic aquí para descargar información sobre Análisis de A1C y Diabetes del Instituto Nacional de la Salud de los Estados Unidos (National Institute of Health, NIH). Además, consulta “4 Pasos para Controlar la Diabetes de por Vida” de The National Diabetes Education Program, un programa de los Institutos Nacionales de la Salud y los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades.
