Higher HbA1c, lower beta cell function, and a maternal history of diabetes is associated with a loss of glycaemic control in young people with type 2 diabetes, evidence has identified.
New research published in the journal Diabetes Care has found that young people with type 2 diabetes and poor glycaemic control are more likely to develop comorbidities compared to those with better control.
During the study, a team of researchers examined the health of 457 young people with type 2 diabetes.
They found that higher cumulative HbA1c concentration over four years and greater fasting glucose variability over a year within three years of diagnosis were related to higher prevalence of dyslipidemia, nephropathy, and retinopathy progression over the subsequent 10 years.
In addition, they discovered that a coefficient of variability in fasting glucose ≥ 8.3 per cent predicted future loss of glycaemic control and the development of comorbidities.
The report states: “These values may be useful tools for clinicians when considering early intensification of therapy.”
