Study examines changes in screening among adults without diabetes

Seventy-eight percent of 12,772 adults without diabetes, ages 45 or older, underwent diabetes screening at least once over three years, with glucose test used 86% of the time and A1C 14% of the time, according to a study in Diabetes Care. Researchers also found that A1C testing is increasingly used for screening and is associated with higher rates of diabetes diagnosis, treatment and referral.Physician’s Briefing/HealthDay News (2/11)
