How does A1C compare to daily blood sugar numbers?

The A1C result is given in percentages, but it can match up with your blood glucose levels when you average them.

To find your personal average blood sugar level:

  • Enter your most recent A1C test result below and click submit
  • Or enter your average blood sugar reading and see what A1C percentage it translates to

This calculator is not a replacement for an A1C test in your doctor’s office and the results should not be used to make therapy decisions.

A1C: %
Your average blood sugar level:

Remember:

  • A1C tests reflect your average blood sugar over the last 2 to 3 months, so the average you see on your meter may not exactly match your A1C results 
  • Since you may be checking your blood sugar levels most often when you are low (when you wake up and before meals), the average of your meter readings may be lower than your actual estimated average blood sugar (eAG) 
  • Your meter readings capture a moment in time, unlike A1C, which represents an average of your glucose levels 24 hours a day
  • Check with your doctor for the right A1C goal for you
  • Toujeo® has proven 24-hour blood sugar control. With Toujeo®, a healthy diet, and exercise, you can work towards your A1C goal

What should your blood sugar levels be before and after meals, according to the ADA?

Every person is different, however:

  • After fasting and before you eat, blood sugar levels should remain between 80 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter) and 130 mg/dL
  • 2 hours after the start of a meal, blood sugar levels should be less than 180 mg/dL
  • Your healthcare professional will tell you what your target levels are
