What do the test results mean?

The normal range for HbA1c is usually about 4% to 6% in people without diabetes. The goal for people with diabetes is a level of 7% or less of HbA1c. If HbA1c is higher than that, the healthcare provider will often make adjustments in the person's diabetes treatment plan.
