    War Erupts Over HbA1c Goals -- Who's Right?

    Post by graham64 on Sun Apr 15 2018, 22:10

    The video will not play for me but there is a transcript 

    After the American College of Physicians released new guidelines for patients with type 2 diabetes last month, the recommendation for less-intensive blood sugar control had many other diabetes organizations voicing their concerns. In this exclusive video, Susan E. Spratt, MD, of Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., weighs the pros and cons of this new update, discusses how the American Diabetes Association has responded, and gives her own recommendations for clinicians treating patients with type 2 diabetes.

    Yes a similar argument in the UK about deintensifying control, so far mainly in the elderly.

    They seem not to have read EPIC-Norfolk

    http://sci-hub.hk/10.1097/MOL.0b013e3280106b95

    or the big New Zealand studies

    http://sci-hub.hk/10.1111/j.1464-5491.2008.02581.x

    and another one I can't currently find, all correlating A1c with cardiovascular risk starting from genuinely normal levels of 5% or less and increasing linearly.

    More proof that the name of the game is eugenics. Why would diabetics deserve health?

    Is just criminal even the way they view analyze the problem is wicked. Blood glucose levels not only account for the complications but they also destroy further the pancreas.That make sure the disease is progressive. Nothing about the best alternative as measure a LCHF diet.

    I wonder when they will decide that the over 60s are too expensive to keep alive and have to check in to the compulsory body scrappage scheme?

    Using excessive insulin to counter the excess carbs isn't too safe either.

    I may be paranoid but that doesn't mean they aren't out go get me. since waiting until people get old to disintegrate failed to meet their goals they are now ensuring that what used to be "diseases of ageing" are now occurring in children. Take the carb-intolerant out of the gene pool early. It's the only way they can feed us our WHO and UN-approved high carb low fat vegan diet based on wheat, soy and "vegetable" oils and byproducts of oil refineries.

    The Presence of Diabetes and Higher HbA1c Are Independently Associated With Adverse Outcomes After Surgery

    CONCLUSIONS Almost one-third of surgical inpatients age ≥54 years had diabetes. Diabetes and higher HbA1c were independently associated with a higher risk of adverse outcomes after surgery.

    And what do they feed the patients, especially the diabetics?
