Use to diagnose and monitor diabetes mellitus. Monitor prediabetes. For patients with known hemoglobin variants without hemoglobin A, the preferred test for monitoring long-term glycemic control is Fructosamine (0099012).
Quantitative Capillary Electrophoresis

|No||Hemoglobin A1c||Less than 5.7 percent|
|No||Estimated Average Glucose||By report|
HbA1c values of 5.7-6.4 percent indicate an increased risk for developing diabetes mellitus. HbA1c values greater than or equal to 6.5 percent are diagnostic of diabetes mellitus. For diagnosis of diabetes in individuals without unequivocal hyperglycemia, results should be confirmed by repeat testing.
This assay provides accurate results for hemoglobin A1c in the presence of hemoglobin variants when hemoglobin A is also present. In patients with known hemoglobin variants without hemoglobin A, suggest monitoring long term glycemic control with Fructosamine (ARUP test code: 0099012).
