Abstract: Although maintaining a 10-year median A1c of 7.0% significantly decreases the rate of overall mortality and myocardial infarction (MI) over long-term follow-up (compared with a median A1c of 7.9%), more aggressive glucose control with a median achieved A1c of 6.4% has no known benefit and may increase mortality. (SOR: B, based on conflicting RCTs.)
