David Mendosa recently posted a blog about " glycemic variability ." Most people have come to expect that their diabetes control is primarily evaluated by the hb A1C level. Indeed, the hb A1c is correlated with a three-month estimated average glucose level, which is very helpful to know in terms of the effectiveness in medical (insulin or oral) therapy. However, what is less often discussed is the importance of glycemic variability: the ups and downs of glucose values that occur naturally and as a result of medication. How does glycemic variability play a role in the management of diabetes? The latest information to date indicates that glycemic variability is extremely crucial in blood vessel inflammation and in physical/emotional well-being. The rate of those glucose excursions (highs and lows) profoundly effect how one feels emotionally, physically, and now cognitively, according to a recent article in Diabetes Care (a journal associated with the American Diabetes Association) .
