HbA1c

CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
HbA1c is formed by non enzymatic glycosylation of the free amino-groups on the N-terminal of the β chain of hemoglobin A0. The HbA1c level is proportional to the glucose level in the blood. Since glucose remains bound to red cells during their entire life cycle, measuring HbA1c provides an indication of the mean daily concentration of blood glucose for the past two months. The measurement of HbA1c is, therefore, considered to be a significant diagnostic tool for monitoring of diet control and therapies during diabetes treatment. The effective control of blood glucose levels is essential for the prevention of ketosis and hyperglycemia, and can possibly reduce the predominance and severity of secondary diabetic complications, such as retinitis, neuropathy, nephropathy and cardiac diseases.
