Free A1C tests

CVS is offering free HbA1C tests from May 9th, 2010 to June 12, 2010. Sadly the service is not available in Massachusetts, Maryland, Nevada and Pennsylvania.

If you never heard of the HbA1C test, this test shows your average blood sugar level over the past 3 months. This is a nice way to show your average glucose control. Diabetics have a goal of reaching 7% or lower score. Non-diabetics tend to have numbers around 3.0% to 6.5%.
