When you come and visit one of the doctors for diabetic foot care at Prairie Path, we will ask you your latest blood sugar and may ask you if you know your hemoglobin A1c, or HbA1c. This is important because as a team approach, we need to make sure you are aware of how tightly your blood sugars are being controlled because in turn, this affects your other organ systems, your extremities, and your feet. The HbA1c is a test that gives an estimate of your "average" blood glucose level over the past 2-3 months. Ideally, your A1c goal number should be below 7.0%.
