Scientists devise a more accurate way to gauge blood sugar averages in diabetes

(Harvard Medical School) Marrying advanced math with standard blood-sugar tests, Harvard Medical School scientists have devised a more accurate way to measure three-month average blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. The new model offers a more precise alternative to the current gold-standard test by accounting for the age of a person's red blood cells. Average blood sugar is the best predictor of long-term diabetes complications and the cornerstone of disease management.
