Metadata[+] Show full item record
In patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, elevation in glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is correlated with microvascular complications such as neuropathy, nephropathy, and retinopathy. Elevation of HbA1c is also linked to increased risk of macrovascular complications, including heart attack and stroke. (SOR A, based on a large randomized controlled trial [RCT] and homogeneous systematic reviews.)
