How to reduce blood glucose test index

Eat healthy, avoid skipping meals, exercise regularly… help diabetics control the HbA1c test index.

Your doctor will help you determine how often you check your blood sugar levels.

Check the TIR (the time when blood glucose is in the target range) to see if it is at an optimal level.

According to the American Diabetes Association, each person’s blood glucose target threshold may vary but the recommended TIR is 70-180 mg/dl (3.9 to 10 mmol/l).

Knowing the A1C is an important part of monitoring and providing appropriate treatments for each stage.
