From Lyndhurst, New Jersey, USA:
My 13 year old son just had his first a1c test done. He has IDDM type 1. Can you explain some of the results:
- A1C 5.8
- fructosamine 279
- PBG 0.82
- albumin 4.8
- TSH 1.5
- T4, free
- non-dialysis 0.92
Are these results good in all areas? I don't understand too much since he is newly diagnosed.
This looks like new diabetes. The A1c reflects very good control, and okay for new; I wouldn't usually look for it to stay this low. The thyroid studies (T4 and TSH) also are okay. I don't understand the other tests.
