    The article presents information on a study that aims to determine whether there are differences in the relationship of GHb to fructosamine in diabetic subjects who do or do not develop retinopathy. It states that fructosamine contributed about three-fifths to the predictive power of GHb, while...

    The article offers information on hemoglobin A1c and the importance of A1c tests. Glucose attaches itself to the hemoglobin, a protein inside the red blood cells, as it travels through the body. The more high glucose levels in the body, the more glucose will attach to the hemoglobin. A study...

    Backgrounds: We compared the usefulness of fasting plasma glucose (FPG), or hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), or both in predicting type 2 diabetes. Methods: This retrospective cohort study investigated 9,322 Japanese adults (4,786 men and 4,536 women), aged 19- 69 yrs, free of diabetes at baseline....

    Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is the gold standard for monitoring glycemic control and serves as a surrogate for diabetes-related complications. Although HbA1c measures mean glycemic exposure during the preceding 2 to 3 months, it does not provide information about day-to-day changes in glucose levels....
