What is Glycolated Hemoglobin (HbALc) for Patients with Diabetes Mellitus
The life cycle of red blood cells is 120 days. This combination won’t stop until the red blood cells decline and die. Therefore, the level of glycated hemoglobin (HbALc) can reflect the average level of blood sugar for the near 2-3 months, without being disturbed by the fluctuations of blood sugar in a short time. So, it can more exactly reflect the level of blood sugar so as to prevent the occurrence of complications effectively. The glycated hemoglobin (HbALc) has been used as a “golden sign” to measure blood sugar.
To prolong the lives of patients with Diabetes Mellitus, the patients must keep the Glycolated Hemoglobin (HbALc) under control. The American Diabetes Association Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes Mellitus added the A1c≥ 48 mmol/mol (≥6.5%) as another criterion for the diagnosis of diabetes.
What we should do in our daily life to keep the Glycolated Hemoglobin under control?
1. Stay away from the obesity.
2. Avoid consuming high-fat foods.
3. The diet should be appropriate.
4. Avoid or limit the intake of medicines which can be harmful for the blood sugar metabolism.
5. Keep the blood pressure under control.
6. Quit smoking and drinking.
