Serum undercarboxylated osteocalcin correlates with hemoglobin A1c in children with recently diagnosed pediatric diabetes.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Osteocalcin (OC), a hormone secreted by osteoblasts, improves beta-cell function in vitro and in vivo. We aimed to understand the relationship between OC and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) in pediatric diabetes.
