Glycated Hemoglobin, Diabetes, and Cardiovascular Risk in Nondiabetic Adults

From New England Journal of Medicine

This community-based study of nondiabetic adults compared the prognostic value of glycated hemoglobin and fasting glucose for identifying persons at risk for clinical outcomes such as diabetes. As compared with fasting glucose, glycated hemoglobin was similarly associated with the risk of diabetes and more strongly associated with the risks of cardiovascular disease and death from any cause, adding to data about the use of glycated hemoglobin as a diagnostic measure.
