Average Sugar  presumed

Dashed Trail

Estimated average glucose (eAG) refers to your average blood sugar (glucose) levels for the past 60 to 90 days.

Is the predicted average glucose within a target range?

There isn't one eAG aim that works for everyone. Your doctor will work with you to choose a target that is suitable for your situation and age.

Dashed Trail

The ADA defines the following eAG ranges:

Normal range: less than 114 mg/dL

Dashed Trail

Prediabetes range: greater than 114 mg/dL and less than 140 mg/dL

Dashed Trail

Diabetes range: greater than 140 mg/dL

The ADA's 2021 diabetes care recommendations state that individuals with well-controlled diabetes should have an A1C blood test to determine their eAG performed at least twice a year.

How often should you test your estimated average glucose?

Another essential tool in the management of diabetes is daily glucose monitoring. However, regular tracking can't provide you a long-term picture of your blood sugar levels.
