The glycohemoglobin test is used primarily to diagnose and monitor diabetes. People who have diabetes or other conditions that increase blood glucose levels have elevated levels of glycohemoglobin.
According to the Diabetes and Glycohemoglobin article published on Journal of Insurance Medicine, "…the two most important recent innova- tions in diabetic care were not the high-tech insulin pump nor the recombinant-DNA production of human insulin. In- stead the relatively low-tech home glucose monitoring and glycohemoglobin determinations have had wider impact on diabetic care and have allowed tight glucose control in a large number of patients."

"It is so much easier ordering online than adding to the gasoline fumes driving to the store, fighting traffic, finding a parking place, then finding the store is out of what you want. When one can avoid all of this and save money too, what could be better?"
