This test, is indeed, an average of the previous 2-3 months glucoses. In
simple terms, glucose sticks to the hemoglobin in red blood cells. Since the
cell lasts an average of 60-90 days, the amount of glucose "Stuck" on it can
be measured. It can be deceptive though, as an average it could reflect a
wide ranging swing from lows to highs.
