"Study Determines Glycated Albumin (GA) Levels Increase Relative to HbA1c Over Time"
September 19, 2016
An article in BioMed Research International “investigated whether GA increases with time relative to glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and the association between GA and beta-cell function.” The study concluded that glycated albumin levels do increase relative to HbA1c over time. 340 type 2 diabetes patients were analyzed in order to study the changes and characteristics of glycemic indices (GA, HbA1c, ∆GA/HbA1c). The “glycemic indices decreased and maintained low levels at the base time point (15 to 27 months). At the end point (39 to 51 months), however, “GA significantly increased but HbA1c tended to increase without statistical significance.”
