GENERAL COHORT FOUND TEXT
Your provider may order a blood test called glycated hemoglobin, or
hemoglobin A1c.  This test can be taken any time of day, even right after
a meal.  It measures your average blood glucose (sugar) for the past 2 to
3 months.  The goal is to have your A1c below 9.  If your level is below
7, it shows good diabetes control.  By carefully controlling your blood
glucose levels and practicing other healthy habits, you will feel better
and may prevent or delay diabetes complications such as nerve, eye,
kidney, and blood vessel damage.
