[IP] RE: What is GHb?

Ghb = glycosylated hemoglobin

According to the Complete Guide to Medical Tests by H. Winter
Griffith MD, pg. 377:
"Glycosylated hemoglobin values are reported as a percentage of
the total hemoglobin within an erythrocyte. Hgb A1c is present in
a larger quantity than the other minor hemoglobins; it is
commonly measured and reported separately.
*Hgbs A1a and A1b account for about 1.6 and 0.8%, respectively.
*Hgb A1c accounts for approximately 5%.
*Total glycosylated hemoglobin accounts for 5.5-9%"

Hope this helps!

take care, Kerri
