American Diabetes Association: Diabetes World - Professional Edition

A new, free toolkit is now available to help providers use "estimated average glucose" as a way to explain A1C when talking with their patients about glucose control. A recent study defined the linear relationship between A1C and eAG. The American Diabetes Association is encouraging health care providers to use eAG as a means of simplifying the discussion about glucose control, since it correlates more clearly with glucose self-monitoring than does A1C.
