Our expert says:
HbA1c stands for glycosylated haemoglobin, a blood test which is a useful measure of diabetic control. The level of HbA1c reflects average blood sugar level over the previous three months, so from the HbA1c result one can calculate the average blood glucose over that period of timet. The test is easy to do and can be repeated every few months to keep track of your diabetic control.
Low blood pressure most of the time is a good thing to have, particularly as you are diabetic.
I hope this answers your question!
Best wishes, JT
