Glycated Albumin Detects Prediabetes where HbA1c is Ineffective


A recent article in Endocrinology and Metabolism investigated whether hemoglobin A1c and glycated albumin are effective indicators of prediabetes in obese and nonobese African immigrants. Oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTTs) were administered to “236 self-identified healthy African immigrants” in order to screen for prediabetes. The study concluded that “glycated albumin contributes by identifying prediabetes not detected by HbA1c in nonobese African immigrants.” Further studies hope to analyze a larger cohort of immigrants in order to strengthen the results.
