  • Do you know what your A1C is?

    I was talking with someone yesterday and they relayed to me that they heard that most people do not know what an A1C test is, meaning they wouldn't know what their personal A1C is. Is this true? If you don't want to be identified, please post back as Anonymous in your reply. Thanks.
