Study Reveals Surprising Link Between HbA1c and Cardiovascular Health in Non-Diabetic Adults

20 Apr 2024 • Analyzing data from over 600,000 adults, researchers found that men with HbA1c levels of 5.5% to 5.9% had an increased risk of CVD hospitalization, while women did not show a significant association.

In this population‐based cohort study of people without diabetes or cardiovascular disease (CVD) at baseline, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) was associated with an increased risk of CVD and there were sex differences.

In contrast, an increased risk of CVD was observed only in women with HbA1c levels ≥6.0%.

Furthermore, both men and women with HbA1c levels of 6.0% to 6.4% (prediabetes) were at increased risk of CVD, underscoring the need for vigilant intervention and risk factor medication early in the course of their diagnosis of dysglycemia.
