Although red blood cell (RBC) life span is a known determinant of percentage hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), its variation has been considered insufficient to affect clinical decisions in hematologically normal persons. However, an unexplained discordance between HbA1c and other measures of glycemic control can be observed that could be, in part, the result of differences in RBC life span. To explore the hypothesis that variation in RBC life span could alter measured HbA1c sufficiently to explain some… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
Prevention of complications in veterans with diabetes depends heavily on assessment of blood glucose and HbA1c. The HbA1c is a blood test that measures the exposure of hemoglobin (Hb… Expand

Use of an oral stable isotope label to confirm variation in red blood cell mean age that influences HbA1c interpretation
TLDR
The characteristics of the stable isotope method support its suitability for studies to directly evaluate the impact of variation in MRBC on the interpretation of HbA1c and suggests that the MRBC is stable over time but varies substantially among individuals, and supports the importance of its variation in Hb a1c interpretation. Expand
Modeling of red blood cell life-spans in hematologically normal populations
TLDR
Analysis of the different models proposed to explain the elimination process of RBCs showed that the transit compartment model, which considers variation in life-span in the RBC population, better describes RBC survival data than the random destruction or homogenous life- span models. Expand
Glycated Hemoglobin, Plasma Glucose, and Erythrocyte Aging
TLDR
RBC turnover seems to be dominated by a constant rate of cell loss, and a mechanism that targets cells of a specific age, as revealed by analysis of data on erythrocyte ageing patterns. Expand
Interpreting HbA1c in Presence of Deficiency Anemias
TLDR
To identify Hb cut-off for accurate interpretation of HbA 1c in presence of deficiency anemias, partial correlation between random blood glucose (RBG) and Hb a1c was studied in 1312 subjects, 470 of whom had deficiency-related anemia. Expand
Glycated hemoglobin and red blood cell indices in non-diabetic pregnant women
TLDR
The present study shows a significant positive correlation between HbA1c value with Hb, Hct, and MCHC, and no significant correlation betweenHbA 1c and other RBCs parameters was observed. Expand
Relationship between glycated haemoglobin concentration and erythrocyte survival in type 2 diabetes mellitus determined by a modified carbon monoxide breath test.
TLDR
A decrease in the RBC lifespan will lead to an underestimation of the actual level of hyperglycaemia and the progression of disease by HbA1c in type 2 diabetic patients if the authors do not adjust the R BC lifespan. Expand
Do We Store Packed Red Blood Cells under “Quasi-Diabetic” Conditions?
TLDR
This mini-review aims to compare the biophysical and biochemical changes observed in the red blood cells during cold storage and in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), and to establish a relationship between a high sugar concentration in a storage medium and a deterioration in cells’ functional properties during storage. Expand
A pilot study: effect of erythrocyte lifespan determined by a modified carbon monoxide breath test on glycosylated hemoglobin interpretation.
TLDR
The RBC-lifespan-corrected HbA1c diagnostic criteria provided 100% sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of diabetes in the experimental set and was not refuted in the validated set. Expand
Models for the red blood cell lifespan
TLDR
A compartmental model of RBC populations based on an arbitrary full lifespan distribution, carefully defined the residual lifespan, current age, and excess lifespan of the RBC population, and then derived the distributions of these parameters, providing equally excellent goodness-of-fit, reliable estimation, and physiologically plausible values of the directly interpretable RBC survival parameters. Expand
Changes in hemoglobin profile reflect autologous blood transfusion misuse in sports
TLDR
Hemoglobin profile changed in trained subjects after ABT, with abnormal values of HbA1c and HbPI in 42% of subjects after reinfusion, and future studies will confirm the usefulness of these biomarkers in the anti-doping field. Expand

The effect of fetal hemoglobin on the survival characteristics of sickle cells.
TLDR
Autologous sickle RBCs were labeled with biotin and reinfused to determine overall survival, non-F- and F-cell survival, and time-dependent changes in HbF content (%HbF) for the surviving F cells, and F cells survived longer in all subjects. Expand
Glycosylated hemoglobin as a long-term parameter in appraising the severity of hemolytic disease
TLDR
Results show that GHb is a measure of red cell destruction and restitution, and thus may be useful for long-term monitoring of patients with hemolytic disease. Expand
Stability over time of glycohemoglobin, glucose, and red blood cell survival in hematologically stable people without diabetes.
TLDR
There is a good correlation between the tGHb and plasma glucose concentration in a population without known diabetes and variations in RBC survival as indicated by a reticulocyte count within the reference range is not likely to have a clinically significant effect on interpretation of t GHb data in the context of an integrated glucose concentration. Expand
Is poor glycemic control associated with reduced red blood cell lifespan?
TLDR
An appealingly simple method is used to quantitate erythrocyte lifespan and an inverse correlation with glycohemoglobin concentration in patients with diabetes is reported and multiple assumptions behind the methodology may not be met in the complicated scenario of diabetes. Expand
Hemoglobin loss from erythrocytes in vivo results from spleen-facilitated vesiculation.
TLDR
In old RBCs of asplenic individuals, the decrease of hemoglobin content per cell such as seen in old R BCs of control individuals is absent due to an increase in the absolute amount of HbA(1c) and HbE(1e2). Expand
Time-dependent changes in the density and hemoglobin F content of biotin-labeled sickle cells.
TLDR
This study validated a biotin RBC label by comparison to the standard 51Cr label, and used it to study changes that occur in sickle cells as they age, and found it had a much shorter lifespan than normal RBC. Expand
Evidence for Interindividual Heterogeneity in the Glucose Gradient Across the Human Red Blood Cell Membrane and Its Relationship to Hemoglobin Glycation
TLDR
The data demonstrate interindividual heterogeneity in glucose gradients across RBC membranes that may affect hemoglobin glycation and have implications for diabetes complications risk and risk assessment. Expand
Effect of Iron Deficiency Anemia on the Levels of Hemoglobin A1c in Nondiabetic Patients
TLDR
In patients with IDA, HbA1c decreased significantly after iron treatment from a mean of 7.4% ± 0.8 to 6.2% ±0.6 (p < 0.001). Expand
Senescence of canine biotinylated erythrocytes: increased autologous immunoglobulin binding occurs on erythrocytes aged in vivo for 104 to 110 days.
TLDR
It is suggested that senescence of canine biotinylated RBCs is characterized by binding of autologous IgG and that antibiotin antibodies do not contribute to this process. Expand
Relationship between GHb concentration and erythrocyte survival determined from breath carbon monoxide concentration.
TLDR
Hyperglycemia, as evidenced by high GHb percentage, is associated with an appreciable decrease in erythrocyte life span, which suggests that highGHb percentages may systematically underestimate the true degree of hyperglycemi. Expand
