"Glycated albumin is thought to more accurately reflect glycemic control in diabetic hemodialysis patients than hemoglobin A1c because of shortened red cell survival. To test this, glycated hemoglobin and albumin levels were measured in blood samples collected from 307 diabetic subjects of whom 258 were on hemodialysis and 49 were without overt renal disease."
