Additionally, neither the prevalence of variant hemoglobin
nor albumin levels varied by BMI category (Table 2).
Any variant hemoglobin
that is present will be detected as glycated products.
Erythrocytes with variant hemoglobin
S (HbS) undergo sickle-cell process, physiologically caused by low oxygen tension, acidosis and dehydration.
9 for pattern analysis and HbA2, HbF, and other hemoglobin variants were quantified by high-performance liquid chromatography using the variant hemoglobin
testing system (Bio-Rad Laboratories, Hercules, CA, USA).
We used the Variant Hemoglobin
Testing System (Variant II Beta Thalassemia Short Program, Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc.
The FDA cautioned that the test should not be used to diagnose pregnant women, or to monitor diabetes in-patients with severe comorbidities, such as hepatic or renal disease, or with the hemoglobin variant hemoglobin
This test should not be used to diagnose or monitor diabetes in patients with the hemoglobin variant hemoglobin
6) In a study of 5,136 HbA1c tests performed by one reference laboratory, 1,059 were shown to have a variant hemoglobin
when tested by HPLC.
A new information campaign of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), part of the National Institutes of Health, highlights the importance of using accurate methods to test hemoglobin A1C in people with diabetes who have sickle cell trait or other inherited forms of variant hemoglobin
