Re: [IPk] False HBA1c results !

Had another HBA1c test just to make sure that timing wasn't accounting for
the difference . This time there was JUST ONE blood sample which was split
and sent to the 2 labs in question. Result was 6.3 and 7.7. Still a
significant difference.     This leads me to beleive HBA1c are
scientifically and clinically misleading AND CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
