Guidance on the use of HbA1c to Diagnose Diabetes

Posted on Wednesday 1st August 2012

 

There is a global move to use HbA1c to diagnose diabetes rather than just a blood sugar level.

 

Healthcare professionals at Guy's and St Thomas' and King's NHS Foundation Trusts in London and their surrounding boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark have produced guidance on how to use HbA1c to diagnose diabetes.

 

Further details on the rationale behind this guidance can be found on the Diabetes UK website with futher links.
