The glycosylated hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1c, (HbA1c), which reflects average plasma glucose of the previous few weeks, has recently been used to monitor humans with diabetes mellitus. Further understanding of the HbA1c elevation rate would improve interpretation of HbA1c. We determined glycosylated hemoglobin elevation rates in 5 dogs with induced diabetes. Hemoglobin A1C was determined by an established column chromatographic technique; plasma glucose by glucose oxidase. Values were determined… CONTINUE READING
