Hemoglobins A1c and A1a+b were measured by an automated chromatographic method in 11 control subjects, 100 diabetics and 30 subjects with renal failure not induced by diabetes. Hb A1c was higher in diabetics than in controls (8.26 +/- 0.31 versus 5.24 +/- 0.28, p less than 0.01) and strongly correlated with blood glucose values for the preceding 4 months. In poorly controlled diabetics, submitted to an intensive therapeutic program, Hb A1c decreased rapidly. Hb A1c was slightly but… CONTINUE READING
