A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c from 2010
- Should I change endocrinologists to find someone to allow us to switch my son to a pump? (18 Oct 2010)
- 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)
- 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)
- 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)
- 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)
- 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)
- 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)
- Because of the red blood cell turnover, would donating blood on a regular basis affect one's A1c? (5 Mar 2010)
- 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)
- 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)
