February 11, by David Mendosa Share You want to control your diabetes as much as possible. So you regularly check your A1C level.
This is the best measurement of our blood glucose control that we have now. It tells us what percentage of our hemoglobin — the protein in our red blood cells that carry oxygen — has glucose sticking to it. The less glucose that remains in our bloodstream rather than going to work in the cells that need it the better we feel now and the better our health will continue to be.
But before we can even set that goal, we have to know what the target is. The major laboratories that test our levels often say that the normal range is 4. They base that range on an old standard chemistry text, Tietz Fundamentals of Clinical Chemistry.
But the other key study, the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study or UKPDS, which compared conventional and intensive therapy in more than 5, newly diagnosed people with type 2 diabetes, said that 6. Those levels, while unsubstantiated, are close. But they comes along one of my heroes, Dr.
Bernstein, the author of the key text of very low-carb eating for people with diabetes, Dr. Bernstein himself developed type 1 diabetes in at the age of Bernstein says is normal is so at odds with the other experts that at least a year ago I determined to find scientific proof of what a normal A1C level actually is.
It turned out to be a lot more difficult to find than I ever imagined. My personal quest for a normal A1C level and that of my favorite Certified Diabetes Educator drove that search. When I learned in that I had diabetes and that my A1C level was Lately I have been doing everything I can think of to try to get my A1C down to normal.
But in my level in nine separate A1C tests always ranged from 5. What could we be doing that is so wrong?
Each of us is thin, eat a very healthy diet, exercise a lot, take care of our teeth and gums, which is a major source of infection.
I learned this just yesterday when I finally tracked down actual research determining what normal levels are. A friend suggested that I contact the people who run the standardization program for A1C testing.
Those initial used to stand for the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program. But now that the NGSP is international, they changed the name.
And finally hit pay dirt in my quest for learning what a normal A1C is. The results from one study to the next are always close, Curt told me. In their most recent study they tested 29 people who lived nearby in central Missouri.
So what were their levels? They ranged from 4. I am certainly no statistician. But Curt tells me that it includes about 99 percent of the values. The range is narrower — 4. This includes about 95 percent of the values. In fact, levels below 4. Remember these are the ranges obtained by the people who set the standards for A1C tests.
Sadly, however, not every laboratory or home test kit meets those standards. Maybe the lab that Dr. Curt suggests that you ask your doctor if the lab running the test uses a method that is certified by the NGSP.
The first conclusion of the research for me is that we need to shoot for a normal A1C level of no more than 6. However, an A1C level of 6.
Still, a lower A1C level among people who take those medications is possible without hypos. Bernstein has amply shown that both in his own life and that of thousands of his patients.
For example, two-thirds of all American adults are overweight. Thus it has become normal in our culture to be overweight.What do the X's mean? The X's just indicate the ones I either have not watched or I have watched but have no review or a puny review.
