(HealthDay News) -- An A1C test is commonly performed on people with diabetes as a way to help monitor a person's blood sugar over time.
The labtestsonline.org website says doctors may order this test because:
It can indicate whether your current treatment plan is adequately controlling diabetes.
It may show that your insulin dose needs to be adjusted.
It may help newly diagnosed diabetics learn to monitor blood glucose.
It may be used initially to screen for diabetes.
