Some include the considerable variation in accuracy and precision between different manufacturers’ products, while others involve cost and access issues. In addition, the AACE position statement highlights the significant benefits of testosterone therapy in men with CV risk factors, including a decrease in fat mass, an increase in muscle mass, decreased insulin resistance and a reversal of metabolic syndrome in some patients. Several obesity experts contacted by MedPage Today said they agreed with the new guidance, that treating overweight and obesity could resolve many of the conditions that commonly occur with it. Clinicians diagnose prediabetes, or being at high risk for diabetes, when patients’ fasting glucose is between 100 and 125 mg/dL, glucose tolerance test is 140 to 199 mg/dL, and hemoglobin
Heart health is something most people start worrying about in middle age. There are biological and psychological reasons for this. Among the 54 adolescents aged 13 to 18 years and the 46 young adults aged 19 to 25 years, 78% and 89%, respectively, were not meeting HbA1c targets set by the American Diabetes Association.
