Conversion chart

Recommended Posts

PatriciaJ

I looked at conversion charts online. There seems to be a difference in that some show higher glucose numbers for each A1C :o

The Mayo Clinic site lists glucose of 126 for an A1C of 6, so maybe this chart is fairly accurate??

 

HbA1c        5.0     5.1     5.2      5.3      5.4      5.5     5.6      5.7      5.8      5.9
Glucose     97     100     103     105     108     111     114     117     120     123


HbA1c         6.0     6.1      6.2      6.3      6.4      6.5      6.6      6.7      6.8       6.9            
Glucose     125     128     131     134     137     140     143     146     148     151


HbA1c        7.0      7.1      7.2      7.3      7.4      7.5      7.6      7.7      7.8      7.9    
Glucose     154     157     160     163     166     169     171     174     177     180

CGM studies of non-diabetics (NIH) match the new Eag conversion charts (what you have posted above) which shows an average mean A1C of those age 40 and under of 5, those over 40 at 5.3.

There are 2 commonly used equations to calculate an a1c conversion. I just use the converter either here at the top of the screen under tools, or the one on Ruhl's site. I think they use the same formula. What's on this site gives higher numbers than what you posted - so probably using the different formula

 

eta:  I don't think there is a linear change in blood sugar with increases in a1c % the way this chart seems to indicate. The converters I use give an a1c of 7% to be an average glucose of around 170 and that sounds a lot more accurate than the 154 in this chart.

I have never found any of the conversions charts to correlate with my meter. My HbA1 c always comes in significantly higher than my meter average. I think I am just a high glycator and will just have to live with higher hbA1 c's. 3 different people can have the exact meter readings and come back with very different HbA1c's, vsrying as much as a full point, lower or higher.
