Readers Respond: A1c Home Test Kits

Be the first to respond


Updated May 14, 2010

From the article: A1c Home Test Kits
A1c tests have become increasingly important to overall diabetes management. Most people with type 1 have 2 to 4 A1c tests a year, at best. But it is almost universally acknowledged that these tests, if done regularly (every 2 to 3 months), could give the person with diabetes a better handle on glucose management efforts.

Beyond doctor's office testing, patients may explore the use of at-home testing. If you've tried these tests, do you find them useful as a complement? How so, and what are some tips you'd offer others using these at-home kits?
