Status: Baseline only
Reduce the proportion of adults with diagnosed diabetes with an A1c value greater than 9.0 percent
Baseline: 18.7 percent of adults aged 18 years and over with diagnosed diabetes had an A1c value greater than 9.0 percent in 2013-16 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)
Target: 11.6 percent
When people with diabetes have an A1c level above 9 percent, they may need more care and treatment. Clinical trials have shown that having A1c levels above 9 percent increases the risk of complications.
