Poor HbA1c Control


Most Australians have poor diabetes control so the risk of complications is increased. HbA1c levels are a measure of control. A level of 7 percent is considered good control. Those individuals not reaching the <7% target are at higher risk of diabetic complications.

Nearly half of all Australians with diabetes have levels greater than 7%.

Every 1% reduction in HbA1c levels reduces the risk of complications.
