This test is provided by Diabetech and is a relatively low cost way to check your A1c from home.

Correction: The form doesn't want your BIRTH date, it's looking for the date the test sample was taken.

This is my second time using the test. It's quick and easy. The first time I used it, the result was within 0.2 of what I got from my doctor's office.

Well the problem is the company that originally made the only at-home A1C test (with immediate results sort of vanished (least that I know of for the home-user)... the mail-in was a decent substitute but now it seems Bayer Diagnostics has bought the rights and revised their test, the A1CNow!...

This home check is a lot of steps. It is not really a home check. It is a blood sample prepared at home then sent to a lab for the test.
