Re: [IP] Strange Lab Results


The HbA1c is not an average of highs and lows.  It is a
measure of how much glucose has entered your bloodstream
during a set period of time.  That means that if you have
had a lot of high BGs your HbA1c might be higher than
expected.  It will not be affected by lots of low BGs.
