Are You in the Know About the A1C Test?

A1c Quiz

The dreaded A1C test. Twice or more a year, you have to face this "judge" of all you have done the two or three months before. No matter how hard you try, it seems you just can't win!

It's time to change your thinking. The A1C test is not here to condemn you. Instead, it's like GPS — telling you where you are so that you can figure out how to get where you want to go.

Take a deep breath and face your A1C fear. Get to know the test that knows you. Start now!
