Glucose (a type of sugar) molecules in the <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/blood.html/">blood</a> normally become stuck to hemoglobin molecules - this means the hemoglobin has become glycosylated (also referred to as hemoglobin A1c, or HbA1c). As a person's blood sugar becomes higher, more of the person's hemoglobin becomes glycosylated. The glucose remains attached to the hemoglobin for the life of the red blood cell, or about 2 to 3 months.</p> <p>A blood test can measure the amount of glycosylated hemoglobin in the blood. The glycosylated hemoglobin test shows what a person's average blood glucose level was for the 2 to 3 months before the test. This can help determine how well a person's diabetes is being controlled over time.</p> Prueba de hemoglobina glucosilada (hemoglobina A1c)La hemoglobina es una sustancia que está dentro de los glóbulos rojos y que transporta oxígeno a las células del cuerpo.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/hba1c-esp.html/01590019-4d1b-4444-bffb-08edccf18155kh:age-allAgesOrAgeAgnostickh:clinicalDesignation-endocrinologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-endocrinologyDiabetes Words to Knowhttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/diabetes-center/words-know/63862b1e-76bb-4a56-9adf-0691e78f1ec8
