A1c Blood Test Is Unreliable for Diabetes Screening

Case Two: Positive A1c Test Without Diabetes

Majid Ali, M.D.

A1c blood tests is used for screening for diabetes. In my view this test is far too unreliable to be used for this purpose. In this A1c Test Series, I present case studies to support my position.

A1c test is used for diagnosis of diabetes. I think this practice should be discontinued. Why? Because this test Is unreliable for this purpose. Two case studies presented below illustrate my point. In both cases, the A1c test results would have been gravely misleading had I not done insulin profiling tests.
