Glycated hemoglobin (glycosylated hemoglobin or HbA1c) is a marker for the average blood glucose levels over the previous two or three months prior to the measurement. Therefore, monitoring HbA1c is useful in the management of diabetic patients.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA), the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) have planned in 2008 the switch of the reported glycated hemoglobin values from DCCT units (%) to IFCC units (mmol/mol).
This App was designed to provide a useful conversion tool between these units of measurement and an estimate of the average blood glucose levels based on the HbA1c value.

Take a selfie or a group picture, position the blue circle around your face or anywhere on the picture and share it on social media (#WDD) with a personal message.
