A1c: a three month “look-back” at glycated hemoglobin sugar levels that is wrongly used to manage “safe” blood sugar levels.
A1c offers a longer horizon of one’s blood sugar levels and is clinically used in place of snap-shop blood glucose readings used by diabetics on a daily, hourly basis.
A1c ignores neurological deterioration and the ONGOING state of systemic inflammation of anyone in a state of pre-diabetes [which is approximately 65% of the population who is not “diabetic.”
Elevated blood sugar causes blood hemoglobin to “glycate”. Neurological deterioration is associated with plaque formation and ongoing elevated blood sugar levels [above 90] that can exist for decades prior to cognitive decline and formation of brain tangles. Learn more.
Glycated hemoglobin is what the A1c measurement is about. A1c is very different that the usual blood glucose readings because it looks BACKWARDS over three months which is the length of time red a blood cells exist before losing its nucleus which makes it a red blood corpuscle. Red blood cells/corpuscles live for four months, three as a cell, and one as a corpuscle.
Contrary to medical theory which says if you maintain your A1c below 5.5 you need not worry about becoming diabetic, a perfect A1c score ignores the inflammatory state of PRE-DIABETES, which will eventually lead to deterioration of the vital organs, cognitive decline and diabetes.
