From: Prevalence of diabetes and pre-diabetes in rural Tehri Garhwal, India: influence of diagnostic method

  No/Mild Anemiaa
n = 46
Moderate/Severe Anemiaa
n = 94
HbA1cb FBG/PBGc HbA1cb FBG/PBGc
No Diabetes 21 (45.7%) 45 (47.9%)
Pre-diabetes 39 (84.8%) 17 (37.0%) 85 (90.4%) 39 (41.5%)
Diabetes 7 (15.2%) 8 (17.4%) 9 (9.6%) 10 (10.6%)
  1. Only cases with both HbA1c at Time 1 and FBG/PBG at Time 2 were included in analysis; n = 140, excluding 18 subjects with normal HbA1c results (HbA1c < 5.7%)
  2. aNo/mild anemia was defined as Hb > 11.4 g/dL; moderate/severe anemia was defined as Hb ≤ 11.4 g/dL
  3. bPre-diabetes was defined as 5.7% ≤ HbA1c ≤ 6.4%; diabetes was defined as HbA1c ≥6.5%
  4. cPre-diabetes was defined as 100 mg/dL ≤ FBG ≤ 125 mg/dL or 140 mg/dL ≤ PBG ≤ 200 mg/dL; diabetes was defined as FBG > 125 mg/dL or PBG > 200 mg/dL
  5. In the instances where FBG was not available, diagnosis was based on PBG (n = 23)
