"Glycated Albumin, Not Hemoglobin A1c, Predicts Cardiovascular Hospitalization and Length of Stay in Diabetic Patients with Dialysis" - American Journal of Nephrology
November 15, 2012
About this study: "In this study, relationships between GA, HbA1c, and casual plasma glucose (PG) with cause-specific cardiovascular (CV) disease, infectious disease (ID), and vascular access- (VA) related hospitalization rates and length of stay (LOS) were analyzed.
In conclusion, improved glycemic control based on GA and PG predicted CV-related hospitalizations; GA also predicted CV hospitalizations LOS. HbA1c did not predict cause-specific hospitalizations in dialysis populations."
