Poor glycemic control is a major factor in the overestimation of glomerular filtration rate in diabetic patients

eGFR overestimates Cin as glycemic controls worsen. eGFR corrected by hemoglobin A1c is considered to be clinically useful and feasible (Diabetes Care)


Risks of Diabetic Nephropathy with Variation in Hemoglobin A1c and Fasting Plasma Glucose

Annual FPG and HbA1c variations have a strong association with diabetic nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes. Whether intervention for reducing glucose variation should be administered needs to be examined in a future study (American Journal of Medicine)
