Re: [IP] New Manner of Calculating A1c?



Responding to my own message:

<< She reported that her doctor diagnosed her with D because she was 
"just over the level" on an A1c, but that her A1c was -- wait for it -- 
46. >>

She also specifically mentioned that the "old way" of calculating the 
A1c was a 6.5, from how I interpreted the message. This would fall into 
line with her being "just over the level" -- though a 6.5 mmol/L would 
be 117, which isn't even high enough for a dx of diabetes, since the 
standard for diagnosis on a fasting level is 126 mg/dl.

Thanks again,

Christine
