Hemoglobin A1c Monitoring: A Global Strategic Business report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2010
As per the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), an estimated 285 million people, across the globe, are affected by diabetes mellitus, of which less than half have been identified. The seriousness of the affliction and the need for effective therapy to manage diabetes has led to the emergence of a significant market for monitoring the treatment efficiency of the disease. A1c monitoring is the standard practice adopted for monitoring diabetes to facilitate better diabetes management. The test is done before starting treatment for patients diagnosed with type 1 or type 2diabetes mellitus.
Diabetes patients (type I) who regularly monitor their HbA1c (hemoglobin A1c) levels could attain tight glucose control, thus considerably reducing their vulnerability to a cardiovascular disease. High blood sugar level for a longer period of time could result in increasing the risk of heart disease or stroke. An HbA1c level more that 4.6 indicates the person is at increased risk for heart attack.
The US dominates the global Hemoglobin A1c Monitoring market as stated by the new market research report on hemoglobin A1c monitoring market.
