Diabetes - Blood Sugar (A1c)

One of the five goals for achieving the best diabetes care is maintaining appropriate blood sugar (A1c level less than 8).

Maintaining the right blood sugar level is an important part of controlling diabetes. The A1c is a blood test that measures the amount of blood sugars in the bloodstream. This test shows your blood sugar average over a period of 3 months. When it is in the right range people feel better and the risk of diabetes related problems are reduced.

High quality care for diabetes includes tests to see if your diabetes is less than 8. This goal is part of the D5, five treatment goals created to make it easier for patients with diabetes and their health care team to focus on treatments that have the greatest health impact. 

Talk with your doctor about how you're doing on your D5. Learn more at www.theD5.org.



The Data:

The bar charts and percentages below tell you how well Minnesota physicians and other health care providers help patients maintain appropriate blood sugar (A1c level less than 8).

The average provider rating statewide is 74%. This means that 7 out of 10 adult patients with diabetes met this treatment goal. The percentages and bar charts below represent ratings for the care people received in clinics.

High provider numbers are a sign of quality care. Your provider may have a higher or lower rating depending on how many patients achieved their treatment goals. Small differences in these percentages don’t necessarily reflect the quality of your care. It is important to look at the larger differences and talk with your provider if you have questions or concerns. 

This report is based on information from patient medical records for services received between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.
