"Glycated Albumin, Not Hemoglobin A1c, Predicts Cardiovascular Hospitalization and Length of St

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." Click here to read more about the scientific journal!
