Glycohemoglobin (GHb), Total (DO NOT USE)
Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Blood

Lab: Quest Diagnostics

Results: 5-7 business days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Description: A useful test to reassure the patient who is well controlled, and to assess the status of insufficiently controlled patients. Measurement of glycated hemoglobin by affinity chromatography permits better differentiation of the degree of blood glucose control among diabetics than does hemoglobin A1c or hemoglobin A1 measurements.
