Hopefully this is the chart you are looking for: Printable Diabetes Chart- Convert HbA1c to estimated Average Glucose(eAG) .

Even then do not rely on it to be the average you will see from the A1c results. This is bacause the HbA1c is an average of glucated blood glucose for about the last three months. This does not account for the variances as some glycated red cells die quickly and others have longer lives. Therefore if in the second month most of the red blood cells with high levels of have died off then the most recent month will influence the A1c test the most.

A much easier explanation to follow is put forth by Tom Ross on his web site at Not Medicated Yet: Your Non-Depressing Guide to Type 2 Diabetes. . You will need to scroll down to his post on Friday, November 19, 2010 as his blog is not set up to be able to take you directly to the discussion.

Hope this gives you a better idea about the A1c test.
