OBJECTIVE Various cutoff levels of hemoglobin A(1c) (A1C) have been suggested to screen for diabetes, although more consensus about the best level, especially for different ethnicities, is required. We evaluated the usefulness of A1C levels when screening for undiagnosed diabetes and as a predictor of 6-year incident diabetes in a prospective, population-based cohort study. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total 10,038 participants were recruited from the Ansung-Ansan cohort study. All subjects… CONTINUE READING

We evaluated the usefulness of A1C levels when screening for undiagnosed diabetes and as a predictor of 6-year incident diabetes in a prospective , population - based cohort study .
After multivariate adjustment , men with baseline A1C ≥5.6% had a 2.4-fold increased risk and women had a 3.1-fold increased risk of new - onset diabetes .
An A1C cutoff of 5.9% may identify subjects with undiagnosed diabetes .
A1C is an effective and convenient method for diabetes screening .
An A1C cutoff of 5.6% had the highest sum of sensitivity ( 59% ) and specificity ( 77% ) for the identification of subsequent 6-year incident diabetes .
Individuals with A1C ≥5.6% have an increased risk for future diabetes .
We evaluated the usefulness of A1C levels when screening for undiagnosed diabetes and as a predictor of 6-year incident diabetes in a prospective , population - based cohort study .
Excluding subjects with a previous history of diabetes ( n = 572 ) , the receiver operating characteristic curve was used to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the A1C cutoff .
Various cutoff levels of hemoglobin A(1c ) ( A1C ) have been suggested to screen for diabetes , although more consensus about the best level , especially for different ethnicities , is required .
