A1CNow+ monitor with 10 test strips for measuring percent of glycated hemoglobin (A1C) levels in capillary (fingerstick) or venous whole blood samples.
The test results from a lab vs the A1CNow system were designed to be as accurate as sending a sample to a lab. However, test results will rarely match exactly, even for repeated tests performed in the same lab. A1C results may be different due to slight differences between labs, normal variation within each test method (venous vs finger-stick), time between tests, temperature, and even humidity.
A1C tests are not designed to be performed within days of another with the expectation of exact, or similar results. The percent of A1c in your blood today tells how well you've been controlling your blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months. About 50% of the A1C result is from the past 30 days of blood sugar levels, about 25% is from the past 30-60 days, and about 25% is from the past 60-90 days. So what you ate or changed or the time of day differences between the days tested could result in a different test result.
Lancets are purchased separately.
