Hemoglobin AC1

A hemoglobin A1c test measures the average amount of sugar in your blood over the last 3 months. As your body processes blood sugar, small amounts of glucose naturally bond with hemoglobin, a protein in the red blood cells. As a result, the hemoglobin bonded with glucose (glycated hemoglobin, or A1c) can be used as an overall record of glucose levels for as long as the individual red blood cell lives, which is about two to three months.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that can build up in the bloodstream so it is important to take the correct levels of Vitamin D as recommended by your provider. Vitamin D is referred to as the “Sunshine Vitamin” because it is generally felt to be converted by the skin into Vitamin D in the human body. However, recently widespread information about a variety of different diseases exists including bone health, cancer and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and chronic fatigue. Some depression has also been linked to low levels of Vitamin D.
