The purpose of this study was to determine the glycemic profiles of drug-naïve type 2 diabetes patients according to hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level using continuous glucose monitoring. We aimed to clarify factors associated with HbA1c and average blood glucose level. Patients were divided into three groups according to their HbA1c level (< 7.0% n=23, 7.0% ≤ HbA1c < 8.0% n=17 and ≥ 8.0% n=31), and the factors associated with HbA1c and average glucose of each group were evaluated. Pre-meal glucose levels were the highest before lunch, and the 2 hour postprandial blood glucose level was the lowest after lunch. The pre-meal and postprandial blood glucose levels increased after each meal with increases in HbA1c. Average glucose level was the most significant determinant of HbA1c, whereas pre-meal glucose level at dinner was the most significant determinant of average glucose level, and the range of increase in glucose from pre-meal at dinner was the most significant determinant of standard deviation (SD) of 24 hour glucose levels. HbA1c subgroup analysis indicated that pre-meal glucose level at lunch significantly correlated with average glucose level in the HbA1c < 8.0% group, while pre-meal glucose level at dinner significantly corr...Continue Reading

Biomarkers for Type 2 Diabetes

Biomarkers can help understand chronic diseases and assist in risk prediction for prevention and early detection of diseases. Here is the latest research on biomarkers in type 2 diabetes, a disease in which the body is unable to produce or properly use insulin.
