[IP] Converting HbA1c's to average BGs

I'm catching up on old digests:

> Conversion from hbA1c to average bg's can be
> accomplished with a
> straightforward formula
> US units, avg bg = hbA1c*33.3 -86
> EU units, avg bg = hbA1c*1.82-4.72

BUT, wouldn't this be *only* for the recorded BGs? We saw a chart of about 6
*good* BGs in a day. However, with the readout of a CGMS (Continuous Glucose
Monitoring system) the BGs unrecordered in between the tests were quite wide
swings. Someone doing 4 BGs each day(s) may get a different result if they did
12 BGs another day(s). So, this too, would fall under the SWAG system
(Scientific Wild A** Guess). YMMV (~_^)
