hemoglobin (type) A1C is sort of a barometer of how blood sugar control is going- some glucose attaches to hemoglobin in the blood, forming HgBA1C- so, the more sugar in blood over time, the higher the HgBA1C- since HgBA1C has a slow turnover, it actually reflects the blood sugar over the past 3 months
