We're proud to support the American Diabetes Association® and provide the next steps for healthier living with diabetes, prediabetes, and co-conditions. We're committed to making healthcare easier for you every step of the way.
All about the A1c test
An A1c (HbA1c) test is a lab test that helps evaluate your blood sugar levels over the past 90 days. It’s a quick, convenient way to determine if you have prediabetes or diabetes.
If you scored medium or high on the "Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test", we suggest adding an A1c test to screen your risk prediabetes or diabetes.
Great news, in most areas you can take an A1c test right at home. We’ll send a lab technician to your home (where available) or direct you to a patient service center near you.
After reviewing your results, a 9amHealth medical expert will schedule a consultation and create a custom care plan that fits your needs.
Understanding your A1c result
Testing your A1c level is a quick, convenient way to screen for prediabetes or diabetes. The result is reported as a percentage. The higher the percentage, the higher your blood sugar levels have been over the past 2-3 months.
How the A1c test works

What our community is saying
I work in the healthcare profession, I am very reluctant to go to a physician, because it’s so hard to get an appointment! Got my lab work done within a week and had medications that I probably should’ve been on for the last 10 years. So convenient I really wish this had been available a long time ago.Annette Hendricks, 9amHealth member
