How do I check my a1c? My doctor did it when I was diagnosed but not since then. Can I do that at home? Do I have to have a special meter?
The A1C test should be ordered every 3 to 6 months, depending on the result. Call your doctor’s office and ask for a repeat A1C test if you haven’t had one recently. There is a test sold under the name A1C NOW that people can use at home to check their own A1C, however, it can be expensive and a little complicated to use. This home test can give you an idea of how you are doing, but a lab test is more reliable.
