At AED urgent care clinic, we offer A1c testing as part of our comprehensive range of diagnostic services. A1c testing, also known as glycated hemoglobin testing, is a vital tool in assessing and monitoring a patient’s long-term blood sugar control, specifically for individuals with diabetes or those at risk of developing the condition.

A1c testing provides valuable insights into a patient’s average blood sugar levels over the past two to three months. This is achieved by measuring the percentage of hemoglobin in the blood that has become glycated, or coated with sugar molecules. Since red blood cells have a lifespan of approximately three months, the A1c test effectively reflects a patient’s blood sugar levels over that period.

Our highly trained and experienced healthcare professionals administer the A1c test using a simple blood draw, usually obtained through a quick and virtually painless procedure. The blood sample is then sent to our state-of-the-art laboratory for analysis, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

A1c testing is crucial for several reasons. For individuals already diagnosed with diabetes, it aids in determining the effectiveness of their current treatment plan, enabling healthcare providers to make necessary adjustments to optimize blood sugar control. It also serves as a benchmark for setting treatment goals and assessing the risk of developing diabetes-related complications, such as cardiovascular disease, kidney problems, and nerve damage.

Additionally, A1c testing plays a vital role in the early detection and diagnosis of diabetes. For individuals at risk or displaying symptoms of diabetes, an elevated A1c level can indicate the need for further testing or intervention. Early identification allows for timely implementation of lifestyle modifications, medication management, and necessary support to help prevent or delay the onset of diabetes and its associated complications.

At AED urgent care clinic, we understand the importance of prompt and accurate test results. Our streamlined processes and advanced laboratory capabilities ensure efficient turnaround times, allowing healthcare providers to make informed decisions quickly. Our caring and knowledgeable staff are available to guide patients through the testing process, addressing any concerns and providing education on the significance of A1c testing.

We strive to deliver comprehensive and personalized care at AED urgent care clinic, and A1c testing is one of the many services we offer to support our patients’ health and well-being. Whether you require routine monitoring or have concerns about your blood sugar control, our clinic is equipped to provide the necessary testing and professional guidance to help you manage your diabetes effectively.

How can I obtain the latest COVID-19 vaccine?

Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective and safest measure to prevent severe illness. Similar to other vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine instructs your body on building its own defense against the virus responsible for this disease. Typically, the COVID-19 vaccine consists of two doses, with the second dose administered 14 to 28 days after the initial one. It takes approximately three weeks after the final dose to develop immunity. Access to COVID-19 vaccination is subject to availability and regulations set by your state. Please reach out to us for further information on obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine.
