I am working on clinical data analysis and currently dealing with
When I look at their
Fasting glucose level readings, I see that their values range from
0.9 mmol\L to 64 mmol\L
The values are represented in
mmol\L and no doubts about it.
What I would like to know is,
1) I know that anything
> 7 mmol/L is considered as diabetes but is it possible to go upto this range like
I see this extreme readings
(> 20mmol\L) only for around 6% of my dataset.
So, I am here to seek your opinion on whether it is possible or not. The 6% percent is based on
>20mmol\L limit that I have chosen.
2) When they are being treated in a diabetes specialist centre, can they still have these extreme values of readings?
3) Am I right to understand that all the below items is used to indicate
HbA1c readings? I mean the names have keyword
HbA1c but do they all indicate the
HbA1c measurement which is used for checking
Type 2 diabetes
`Glycated HB, POCT`, `HbA1c, NGSP/DCCT`, `HbA1c, POCT`, `HbA1c, IFCC`, `Glycated HB`
4) Which of the below items indicate
random glucose? Is all glucose called
Glucose-6-Phosphate DH, Quantitative
Glucose-6-Phosphate DH Screen
Glucose, Random Venous. # is it only this one?
Can anyone help?
