Glycated Albumin better indicator than A1C

Glycemic control in patients with diabetes and nephropathy-- GA better indicator than A1C

  • Studies show that the Glycated Albumin (GA) assay more accurately reflects recent glycemic control in patients on dialysis relative to A1C.

  • Reduced A1C levels tend to give patients and their caregivers a false sense of security, suggesting that blood sugars are lower than they really are.

  • Reports reveal that the GA assay, measuring glycation of albumin (not hemoglobin), is more accurate in patients with advanced nephropathy and better predicts survival and hospitalizations.
