Association Between Elevated Hemoglobin A1c Levels And The Outcomes Of Patients With Small-artery Occlusion: A Hospital-based Study

Abstract Abnormal glucose metabolism is an independent risk factor for poor outcome following acute ischemic stroke. However, the relationship between initial hemoglobin A1c level and functional outcome (defined by modified Rankin Scale scores) following small-artery occlusion, a subtype of ischemic stroke, is unknown. The aim of the present study was to evaluate this association among patients diagnosed with small-artery occlusion. Data on 793 patients diagnosed with small-artery occlusion from October 25, 2012 to June 30, 2015 were collected from the stroke registry of the Department of Neurorehabilitation of HuanHu Hospital. Hemoglobin A1c values at admission were classified into three groups according to tertiles (<5.9,5.9to<6.7, and≥6.7). We used receiver operating characteristics curves to investigate the predictive value of hemoglobin A1c and examined the relationship between hemoglobin A1c levels at admission and modified Rankin Scale scores using univariate and multivariate analyses. The area under the curve was 0.570 (95%CI, 0.509–0.631; P = 0.023). Patients in the highest HbA1c stratification (≥6.7) had a significantly higher risk of an unfavorable outcome than pat Continue reading >>

Public Health And Clinical Implications Of High Hemoglobin A1c Levels And Weight In Younger Adult Native American People With Diabetes

Background Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a major public health issue for Native American people. Because glycemic levels are predictive of diabetes outcome, understanding determinants of high hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels may provide targets for prevention efforts. Objectives To investigate determinants of high HbA1c levels in Native American people. Methods We conducted a population-based, cross-sectional study of 206 participants with diabetes from 8 Native American communities in New Mexico. We used linear regression to assess the relationship of HbA1c level with age, body mass index (BMI), treatment type, duration of diabetes, physical activity, and diet. Results Age, dietary pattern, and treatment type were determinants of HbA1c levels. Participants younger than 55 years had the highest adjusted HbA1c levels at 9.5% and those 65 years and older had the lowest levels at 7.8%. According to a participant's dietary intake, HbA1c levels were highest for those who consumed the most fat and sugar, and high consumption of fat and sugar affected HbA1c levels most among those younger than 55 years. Participants treated with insulin had the highest hemoglobin A1c levels. Physical activity Continue reading >>

Lifting Helped My A1c

How one man with Type 1 found that pulling fire trucks helped him get control of his blood sugar levels. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of four when I registered an astounding blood sugar reading of 880 mg/dl. I spent 2 weeks in a coma after that, and I don’t remember anything from that hospital stay. After those two weeks, my family and I were packed up and sent home with a dietary chart and a blood glucose meter. For 20 years afterwards, my blood sugar levels were erratic and my body was weak. One night, my wife came to me and told me we were going to be having a baby. At that moment, I decided to get better control of my Type 1 diabetes so I would be able to watch my child grow into adulthood. I knew losing weight would help with blood glucose control, so I joined the local gym and worked with a personal trainer. I soon became fascinated by bodybuilding and immersed myself in it with the goal of trying to compete. In a short amount of time, I managed to go from a chunky 172 pounds to a proportioned 205 pounds and had dropped my body fat from 32% to 18%. Bodybuilding favors certain body proportions I did not have, however, and I needed to shift gears to somethi Continue reading >>

    I was told I was borderline a few years ago...I am on no medicine, I know if I don't be good with food, I can have high readings on my meter..anyway, I had A1C and the nurse said it was normal..it was 6.0..what does that mean? Normal for anyone or normal for someone who has problems.

  2. SamQKitty

    An A1c of 6.0 or less is considered normal for a non-diabetic, according to The Joslin Diabetes Center.
    I would not take this as a green light to go off your diet and exercise programs, but rather as an indication that you are doing everything right to delay or prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

  3. needhealing777

    From what I understand the A1c test is the most accurate test...so do I need to still daily monitor? And why do my readings come out as 115 average in morning...169 average 2 hours after eating and sometimes takes a few hours to get back below 120..I'm confused what to follow...just A1c or still readings at home and why am I having such bad readings when my A1c comes out as non-diabetic..just trying to figure this all out.
