Abstract: Patient's daily blood glucose tests provide only a snapshot of glycemic control at the moment testing. The HbA1c test, on the other hand, gives the big picture by showing how patient blood glucose control has been over the previous period of time. HbA1c tests are helpful to physician because they give an immediate indication of patient blood glucose control. Over a longer period of time, consecutive HbA1c tests may provide an overall trend of diabetes control. On other hand it has been shown that serum acid is positively associated with serum glucose level in healthy subjects. Recent studies have demonstrated that the uric acid levels are higher in subjects with type 2 diabetes than in healthy controls.
