Back to Ask the Diabetes Team A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c - 2010

A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c from 2010

  1. Should I change endocrinologists to find someone to allow us to switch my son to a pump? (18 Oct 2010)
  2. Is there any research that shows why parents should do their teens' diabetes care? I am upset by implications that I am an unfit mother due to my son's elevated A1c. (27 Sep 2010)
  3. My son's HbA1c was just 10.6. I know this is high and suspect there was a mistake in the testing. Would a very recent day of very elevated blood sugars have affected the HbA1c? (12 Sep 2010)
  4. My husband had a 9.6 mmol/L [173 mg/dl] fasting test. What does this mean? How is this different from an A1c? (5 May 2010)
  5. For years, I aimed for an A1c <6. My new diabetes team has suggested I aim for an A1c of 7 because of frequent lows, but I think 7 is high. What do you think? (27 Apr 2010)
  6. My son is on a very strict diet because of his autism. Other than diet, exercise and vigilance, how can I work to lower his A1c? (9 Apr 2010)
  7. My most recent A1c was half a point lower than expected. Could my blood donation about six weeks earlier have affected this result? (10 Mar 2010)
  8. Because of the red blood cell turnover, would donating blood on a regular basis affect one's A1c? (5 Mar 2010)
  9. Why is it acceptable for a 10-year-old to have an HbA1c of 8? Our pediatrician does not want us to work toward a lower A1c. Am I right to be concerned about possible future complications? (26 Feb 2010)
  10. Within one month of diagnosis, my son's A1c dropped from 10% to 7.2%. How is it possible to have such a drop in only 30 days? (1 Feb 2010)
