About this Book
Adapting to the IFCC system of reporting HbA1c poses a challenge to generations of health professionals who have learnt the percentage system related to the major clinical trials, in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, the DCCT and UKPDS. This handy paperback illuminates the transition path.
Using real-life case studies to illustrate actual clinical situations, the book shows you how to use mmol/mol units in daily practice. Each case study shows the old percentage units alongside the IFCC units for quick comparison. Produced in association with Diabetes UK, this pocketbook helps you work with confidence in the IFCC system.
