Kindly Advise ... Which is more accurate method for testing hba1c .. 1.Nycocard or 2. HPLCL

Good Evening Everybody,

I recently had my hba1c checked . The results are as follows.

1.By Nycocard Method

Hba1c is 6.9% > Normal Ref Range 4.2-6.5%

Mean blood glucose is 82mg/dl

Note in report says :

Interpretation : Glycosylated Haemoglobin is a accurate and true index of the "Mean Blood Glucose" in the body for previous 2 to 3 months .

Method - Nycocard


Day before Nycocard I tested in another LAB they used HPLC method and results are :

Hba1c 5.4% Normal Ref Range = less than 5.7%

Mean blood Glucose which is 108mg/dl


Hba1c result of 5.4 means I am normal and day later Nycocard shoes hba1c 6.9 indicating I am diebatic

All these reports are making me tense .. Don't understand them .. I am likely to loose my job due to high readings which are stating me as a diebatic.

Dear Amitnikam

don't worry much...

About method of checking Hba1c...request shrisamarth to comment...he is most learned person in forum to comment on this subject..ofcoz there are many others like @anup Concerned Shashikantiyengar

you can bring down your Hba1c to normal level ...if u follow low carb diet and avoid consuming any fruit for next few months...

There are many in the forum who are currently maintaining normal Hba1c without or with minimum medicines.



Waiting from the comment from shri.
