LHemA1c

HbA1c is produced by the binding of glucose to hemoglobin in the red blood cells (RBC). The RBC membrane is
completely permeable to glucose. The HbA1c formed is directly proportional to the average blood glucose that the RBC’s have been exposed to during the 120-day average life span of the cells. Although this test is usually used to monitor the long-term blood glucose level of type 1 diabetics, it partially reflects the average glycemic index of the foods consumed by an individual. An intake of higher glycemic foods may raise the HbA1c. This would stimulate more insulin. High insulin levels are associated with elevated CRP levels, a known marker for inflammation.
