How do I check my A1C? I don't even know what it is exactly. Where do I find it on my blood tester?

You can find an at home testing kit by Bayer at places like Walgreens, not cheap but if you don't have an appointment soon, it's worth it. I think it's $30 and comes with 2 tests. Your A1C is your average from the past 3 months

Your A1c is a 3 month average of your blood sugar represented in percentage.
There are test kits out there but like Princess stated, usually it comes from your doctor or endo.
There is a mathematical formula to give you a ballpark if you really need to know.
