Hemoglobin (Hb for short) is a protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen around your body. It is the part of your blood that makes it red.
Glucose or sugar in your blood can stick to hemoglobin, this makes HbA1c. The more glucose in your blood, the higher your level of HbA1c will be.
Red blood cells in your body survive for 8-12 weeks before they are renewed, by measuring HbA1c, you can get an idea of your average blood glucose level of the last 2-3 months.
