Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Role of anemia and iron deficiency anemia on hemoglobin A1C%

Many forms of anemia are associated with lowering HbA1C% but iron deficiency anemia modestly raises HbA1C%. The exact mechanism of anemia and iron deficiency anemia's effect on HbA1c levels is unclear. This impacts our treatment of diabetes mellitus and diabetes mellitus co-morbidity with HIV, Hepatitis C and other diseases in the presence of anemia.
