If you have diabetes or are trying to monitor your pre-diabetic conditions, use the CVS Health at Home A1C Test Kit to get fast, accurate results. This handy kit includes an A1C monitor, two cartridge pouches, two shaker pouches, a quick reference guide, and an overview and helpful hints guide. This unit is made for at-home monitoring of glycemic control and produces accurate results within five minutes. Your A1C level is an indication of your average blood glucose levels over the last 2-3 months to provide you and your healthcare provider with an accurate snapshot of your condition.
The American Diabetes Association recommends that your A1C remain under 7%, and even a one-point reduction could lower your risk of diabetic complications by as much as 40 percent. This provides you with a big picture measurement of your blood sugar levels. This product should not be used daily for blood glucose monitoring. Make sure you speak to your doctor if you have any questions about the results, and do not change or adjust your current medication unless instructed to do so by your healthcare provider.
Remember that test results may vary from person to person, so be sure to talk to your doctor about which A1C target level is right for you. Some conditions could affect your results including anemia, a recent blood transfusion, or if you've experienced any recent significant blood loss. If you are pregnant, your results may not be as accurate.
