The Values

How much glucose is in the blood, more Glycohemoglobin is formed. The life of hemoglobin is about 2 or 3 months, which is the time that It stays in your blood. Therefore, if we measure the value of this Glycohemoglobin have the average value of glucose throughout this period of 2 or 3 months. Values of hemoglobin glycosylated or Glycohemoglobin provided by the laboratory, equal to the average of the values of glucose in the blood of the last 3 months approximately. Do I I compute it also? As I said at the beginning, and you can deduct what you just said yourself you can get the approximate value of glycosylated hemoglobin (of course you won’t get the same result as the laboratory of analysis but yes you can serve to get an idea of vas how taking control of glycemia). For this, as you have to go scoring the daily blood glucose values that you’re doing your child, can make a worksheet with these values and obtain the average value of the last 3 months (would be approximately 630 controls, 7 per day, i.e. 210 a month). Relationship between glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin average: average glucose: 120-> hemoglobin glycosylated: 6 Average glucose: 150-> hemoglobin glycosylated: 7 average glucose: 180-> hemoglobin glycosylated: 8 located between 6 and 7 glycosylated hemoglobin values are pretty good for a diabetic child (in a healthy person would be between 4 and 5).

Up to 8 values are acceptable, but from there, they are already dangerous and indicate poor control of diabetes, which can cause the appearance of chronic complications and damage to other organs such as the view and the kidneys. However, in paediatric age (up to about 6 years of age approximately), values up to 8.5 are supported, but that’s already being very permissive. You have to ensure that blood glucose levels are as much as possible within acceptable margins (i.e. greater than 60 and 180 minor) and thus the glycosylated hemoglobin will not be very high. Glycosylated hemoglobin control is usually done every 3 months, because as we have seen, each control gives us the average blood glucose precisely from this time, about 3 months ago.
