Objective: The A1C assay, expressed as the percent of hemoglobin that is glycated, measures chronic glycemia and is widely used to judge the adequacy of diabetes treatment and adjust therapy. Day-to-day management is guided by self-monitoring of capillary glucose concentrations (milligrams per deciliter or millimoles per liter) as well as by using continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMS). We found a mathematical relationship between A1C and average glucose (AG) levels meas...
