BACKGROUND Glycation reactions of proteins and other compounds, depending on blood glucose concentrations, have a detrimental effect on health. OBJECTIVE The association of diet and other lifestyle factors with glycated hemoglobin (Hb A(1c)) values was examined in a nondiabetic population. DESIGN This was a cross-sectional study of 1773 middle-aged men and women. Mean Hb A(1c) values were calculated for categories of diet and lifestyle factors, and odds ratios (ORs) for the highest versus… CONTINUE READING
