Ten type 1 diabetic patients recorded their daily home blood glucose values, pre- and post-prandially, for 12 weeks. Blood was collected weekly for HbA1c and total haemoglobin measurement. A rolling 28-day mean of all blood glucose values and a glycation index (the ratio of the HbA1c to the rolling mean blood glucose) were calculated. In the pooled patients… CONTINUE READING
