The aim of the study was to assess the association between glycemic control understanding as a glycated haemoglobin level and indices of diabetic neuropathy.. METHODS: We evaluated 204 patients with diabetes (type 1 - 29; type 2 - 175). Glycated haemoglobin was determined using The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial/ National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program method. Evaluation of complaints from the lower extremities was based on the Neuropathy Syndrome Total Score questionnaire. We used a mono lament for evaluation of touch sensation (Semmes-Weinstein 5.07-10 g), a 128 Hz calibrated tune-fork for the vibration perception test, Tip-Therm to assess temperature sensation.. RESULTS: The mean glycated haemoglobin level was assessed on 8.53±1.87%. The mean Neuropathy Syndrome Total Score: 11.45±6.37. Decreased sensation of touch on both sides was determined in 30% of cases, decreased sensation of temperature in 59% and decreased sensation of vibration in 30%. For Neuropathy Syndrome ...
Anyone whos had diabetes for any length of time knows that A1C tests havent been reliable until recently. In the past, many different types of A1C tests gave different results depending on the lab that analyzed them.. However, the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program has helped improve the accuracy of these tests. Manufacturers of A1C tests now have to prove that their tests are consistent with those used in a major diabetes study. Accurate home test kits are also now available for purchase.. Accuracy is relative when it comes to A1C or even blood glucose tests, though. The A1C test result can be up to half a percent higher or lower than the actual percentage. That means if your A1C is 6, it might indicate a range from 5.5 to 6.5.. Some people may have a blood glucose test that indicates diabetes but their A1C is normal, or vice versa. Before confirming a diagnosis of diabetes, your doctor should repeat the test that was abnormal on a different day This is not necessary in the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Umbilicial cord glycosylated hemoglobin in infants of diabetic mothers. T2 - Relationships to neonatal hypoglycemia, macrosomia, and cord serum C-peptide. AU - Sosenko, J. M.. AU - Kitzmiller, J. L.. AU - Fluckiger, R.. PY - 1982/1/1. Y1 - 1982/1/1. N2 - Relationships of neonatal glycemia and birthweight to antecedent fetal glycemia and insulinemia have been examined in the offspring of 63 insulin-dependent diabetic and 29 nondiabetic mothers. Glycosylated hemoglobin levels in maternal and cord blood were measured by the thiobarbituric acid (TBA) colorimetric technique to estimate antecedent fetal and maternal glycemia; cord serum C-peptide was assayed to estimate fetal insulinemia. Glycosylated hemoglobin levels were significantly elevated in the diabetic mothers and their offspring as compared with controls (P , 0.001), and maternal and cord blood levels were highly correlated in the diabetic group (r = 0.61, P , 0.001). Cord serum C-peptide and glycosylated hemoglobin levels ...
BackgroundWith increasing use of glucosamine-containing supplements for the treatment of osteoarthritis, there is increasing concern in the medical community ab
Each patient developed severe neuropathic pain within 8 weeks of initiating intensive glycemic control. Nine patients (age range, 19-29) had type 1 diabetes, and 7 patients (age range, 31-58) had type 2 diabetes. Other common causes of neuropathy were ruled out. Average glycosylated hemoglobin levels were about 14% before intensive glycemic control and about 7% afterward. Pain was in a stocking-glove distribution in 13 patients and was diffuse in 3 patients. Autonomic symptoms (e.g., orthostatic hypotension, gastrointestinal dysfunction) occurred commonly, and standardized tests of sympathetic and parasympathetic function were abnormal in most patients. Retinopathy also worsened during the first 6 months of sustained glycemic control. Pain subsided eventually in most patients, but only after 1 to 2 years of combination drug therapies for neuropathic pain ...
Background: Diabetes mellitus involves 8.7% of the adult community in India, and its preponderance is rising. Diabetes is an independent risk factor for complications after open cardiac surgery. Poor glycaemic control, measured by glycosylated haemoglobin A1C (HbA1c), is associated with high incidence of micro and macroangiopathy. HbA1c reflects the patients prevailing sugar control over the previous 120-150 days. Perioperative cardiac surgical risk scoring systems like Euro Score and STS scoring systems do not include HbA1c level as risk factor. We intended to study the correlation of preoperative HbA1c level and outcome after cardiac surgery.. Methodology: A total of 350 patients who had undergone elective cardiac surgery were included. All patients were stratified into two groups, Group 1 with HbA1c level , 7%, Group 2 ,7%. Intraoperative and postoperative adverse events were documented retrospectively. The two groups of patients were compared with regard to their demographic data, operation ...
In this study, the measurement of GA was shown to provide a more relevant method to assess glycemic control in HD patients with diabetes. Although PG was measured without overnight fasting, a previous report showed that nonfasting, rather than fasting, PG was a better marker of glycemic control in type 2 diabetes (21). Because the mean values of monthly-determined PG essentially were the same throughout the study period, it was suggested that glycemic control had been stable during the 2 mo before the determination of GA and HbA1c and that a single determination just before the Monday/Tuesday HD session might be representative of glycemic control in HD patients with diabetes. Although HbA1c and GA reflect glycemic control during the preceding 4 to 6 wk and 1 to 2 wk (11), the stable glycemic control during the preceding 2 mo can negate the different impact of acute changes of glycemic control between HbA1c and GA in this study. Supportive of this notion is that the correlation coefficient ...
Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition that causes many problems for adolescents and their families. Given the increasing prevalence of diabetes and the numerous complications of the disease that require long-term treatment and the need for daily blood glucose control, lifestyle modification and knowledge acquisition regarding self-care behaviors are essential throughout life.Considering the increasing prevalence of diabetes, this study evaluated the effect of self-care education on glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) level and blood glucose control in adolescents with diabetes in Ilam, Iran.A randomized clinical trial was conducted on patients with type 1 diabetes in Ilam. Patients were assigned randomly to experimental (n = 21) and control (n = 24) groups. A total of seven self-care group training sessions were arranged by the researcher; each session lasted 90 minutes and each group included five people. Patient fasting blood sugar (FBS) and HbA1c levels were measured before and three months after the

Laboratory results may differ depending on the analytical technique, the age of the subject, and biological variation among individuals. Two individuals with the same average blood sugar can have A1C values that differ by as much as 1 percentage point.[8] In general, the reference range (that found in healthy persons), is about 4%-5.9%.[9] Higher levels of HbA1c are found in people with persistently elevated blood sugar, as in diabetes mellitus. While diabetic patient treatment goals vary, many include a target range of HbA1c values. A diabetic person with good glucose control has a HbA1c level that is close to or within the reference range. The International Diabetes Federation and American College of Endocrinology recommend HbA1c values below 6.5%, while American Diabetes Association recommends that the HbA1c be below 7.0% for most patients. A high HbA1c represents poor glucose control. Persistent elevations in blood sugar (and therefore HbA1c) increase the risk for the long-term vascular ...
INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to compare differences in glucoregulation, frequency of hypoglycemic episodes, glucose variability and lipid profiles of inpatients with poorly regulated type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) after evening versus morning glargine application. METHODS: Eighteen patients with poorly regulated T1DM, glycated hemoglobin (Hba1c) levels ≥7% and frequent nocturnal and/or morning hypoglycemic episodes were included in this study. There was a 12-week screening phase where patients continued their usual insulin regimen and were encouraged to achieve optimal glycemic control; however, all patients maintained HbA1c values ≥7% and continued to have frequent nocturnal and/or morning hypoglycemic events and were therefore transitioned to morning application of insulin glargine for 12 weeks. The primary outcome was to investigate changes in HbA1c values 12 weeks after the transition. The secondary outcome was to evaluate the effect of transition on glucose ...

This analysis of the DCCT data has shown that in patients with type 1 diabetes, increasing variability in A1C adds to the risk of microvascular complications over and above that predicted by the mean A1C value alone. This finding was present in the DCCT cohort overall and was also a feature of both treatment groups individually when the mean A1C alone was initially predictive. The effect was most pronounced among those patients who were in the conventionally treated group, presumably because the event rate, the range of variability, and the spread of variability at any given mean A1C was much larger than those for patients in the intensively treated patients.. The magnitude of the effect of A1C variability is marked, such that a 1% absolute increase in A1C SD results in at least a doubling in retinopathy and an 80% increase in nephropathy risk using either of our models. As shown in Fig. 1B, put into the context of individuals participating in the DCCT, it means that a patient in the 97.5th ...

In this population-based cohort study of 3794 people developing diabetes, we found that education and income are inversely associated with an increased risk for HbA1c ,70 mmol/mol (8.6%) at the time of diagnosis with T2D. We also found that earlier IHD disease decreased the odds of having a high HbA1c level at diagnosis. Adjusting for earlier IHD disease increased the risk estimates slightly for low education and income as the prevalence of IHD were higher in these groups.. A strength of the study is that it is based on incident of newly diagnosed cases of T2D and LADA in a defined dynamic population. The exposures were identified and registered before and independent of the outcome ruling out reversed causation and dependent misclassification of the exposures. We also had information on relevant confounders. The outcome was prevalence of increased levels of HbA1c, implying an inability to distinguish between incidence and duration. However, HbA1c was measured at the time of the diagnosis and ...
Patients with diabetes may be able to manage their disease better with an automated instant-messaging service. For 12 weeks, patients who used a Web-based short messaging service lost weight, had better control of their blood sugar, and had lower blood sugar before and after meals, according to Korean researchers. The study involved 35 patients with diabetes and 36 patients in a control group. The patients who used the service recorded their diet and the amount of exercise on a Web site and were given a device to calculate blood sugar and a pedometer that linked with their cell phone and sent data directly to their Web data sheet. The system sent messages back to the cell phones. After 12 weeks, the researchers found that patients who used the service had lost an average of 1.9 kg and had a decrease in their average glycosylated hemoglobin levels from 8.06% to 7.34%. The control group saw no change. Their findings were published in the November 2007 issue of Diabetes Care. F A S T F A C T : ...
Background: Since the DCCT demonstrated that improved glycaemic control reduced complications the goal of diabetes management has been to maintain HbA1c as close to normal as possible. Recent changes by the laboratory to our HbA1c assay, combined with the debate about deanonymised publication of clinic s HbA1c results, creating the potential for league tables , focussed our attention on the variation between HbA1c assays.. Clinical data: Our local adult hospital, which previously processed our HbA1c specimens, opted to replace an aging analyser. During the evaluation of the new analyser, samples were run on both systems for a trial period. Our clinic average HbA1c on the existing analyser was 8.4% but rose 0.7 to 9.1% on the replacement. A few months later we introduced point of care testing and evaluated 3 different analysers. Despite all analysers being DCCT aligned, our clinic average was 8.9, 8.4 or 7.6% depending on the system!. Discussion: The international consensus within the ...

This page has been provided for those who are new to the forum or to the concept of low-carbing as a primary tool for managing diabetes. Although it is aimed principally at Type 2 diabetics, Type 1s and others can also benefit significantly. Managing diabetes means different things to different people, but ultimately the aim for T2s should be to get your blood sugar numbers into the same area as non-diabetics. This means an HbA1c level of less than 42 mmol/mol (6.0% in the old measurement system). (48 mmol/mol or 6.5% and above is regarded as diabetic, 42-47 mmol/mol as prediabetic). For T1s the aim should be the lowest practicable levels concomitant with good control and avoidance of hypos in accordance with their consultants guidance and personal life choices. ...

RESULTS A total of 93 participants completed 24 weeks. Both groups achieved similar completion rates (LC 79%, HC 82%) and weight loss (LC −12.0 ± 6.3 kg, HC −11.5 ± 5.5 kg); P ≥ 0.50. Blood pressure (−9.8/−7.3 ± 11.6/6.8 mmHg), fasting blood glucose (−1.4 ± 2.3 mmol/L), and LDL cholesterol (−0.3 ± 0.6 mmol/L) decreased, with no diet effect (P ≥ 0.10). LC achieved greater reductions in triglycerides (−0.5 ± 0.5 vs. −0.1 ± 0.5 mmol/L), MES (−0.5 ± 0.5 vs. −0.2 ± 0.5), and GV indices; P ≤ 0.03. LC induced greater HbA1c reductions (−2.6 ± 1.0% [−28.4 ± 10.9 mmol/mol] vs. −1.9 ± 1.2% [−20.8 ± 13.1 mmol/mol]; P = 0.002) and HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) increases (0.2 ± 0.3 vs. 0.05 ± 0.2 mmol/L; P = 0.007) in participants with the respective baseline values HbA1c ,7.8% (62 mmol/mol) and HDL-C ,1.29 mmol/L. ...
You cannot always rely on doctors.

Hypoglycaemia is the most important adverse effect of intensive glycaemic management in patients with diabetes. Severe episodes can be accompanied by confusion, disorientation, irrational behaviour, convulsions, coma, permanent impairment of brain function, serious injury, and even death. Hypoglycaemia is particularly dangerous if it occurs while patients are driving or operating potentially hazardous machinery, and in those living alone with no one to provide assistance. Asymptomatic episodes may be accompanied by silent myocardial ischaemia.1 Loss of warning signs (hypoglycaemia unawareness) and severe episodes become more prevalent as glycaemia control improves to the point that glucose levels are at normal or near normal levels. Indeed, hypoglycaemia has been identified as the limiting factor that prevents patients with diabetes from achieving excellent glycaemic control.2 3. The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) reported 62 episodes of severe hypoglycaemia requiring assistance ...
