Clinical Significance of HBALC
HBALC reflects the blood pressure level within recent two to three months and its normal level should keep below 6.5%. It can help patients eliminate the influence on controlling disease caused by fluctuant blood sugar. For patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, their blood sugar often has great fluctuation so HBALC is an important reference level in controlling their blood sugar. For patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, checking blood sugar and urine sugar is easy and also can reflect their disease condition changes. Therefore, the reference value of HBALC is less important to patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus than patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. The normal varying range of HBALC is 4%~6%. If it is lower than 6%, the patients are likely to have Hypoglycemia. However, it is between 8%~9%, the patients should enhance their control of blood sugar. What’s worse, if it is higher than 9%, it can cause a series of complications such as Diabetic Nephropathy, arteriosclerosis and the patients are very likely to have some acute complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis. Therefore, if HBALC is above 8%, the patients with Diabetes Mellitus should enhance the control of blood sugar.
Blood sugar level just presents the present blood sugar level and reflects the disease condition for a short time. Therefore, it can not be considered as an absolute index in assessing the disease condition.
Therefore, all patients with Diabetes Mellitus not only should monitor their blood sugar, but also should check their HBALC regularly. If so, they will be able to decline the incidence of the complications of Diabetes Mellitus.
