Glucose Tolerance Study Reports Positive Relationship Between Glycated Albumin (GA) and Glycated Hemoglobin (HbA1c)  www.epinex.com

A multicenter study in Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice investigated whether there was a relationship between GA and HbA1c and how the GA/HbA1c ratio is associated with glucose indices. The study concluded, “the relationship between GA and HbA1c was strong. [Also] the GA/HbA1c ratio was related to acute postprandial glucose fluctuation and BMI level.” The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was used to study people with normal glucose regulation, impaired glucose regulation, and people newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The results indicated, “GA was positively correlated with HbA1c” and “the mean GA/HbA1c ratio…significantly increased with the presence of glucose intolerance.”
