HBA1C vs RBS/FBS

  1. 0 Good day fellow nurses.

    I am wondering if doctors still order random blood sugar or fasting blood sugar for suspected diabetic patients. Younger docs in our institution usually order HBA1C (glycosylated hemoglobin) if they suspect that a patient is diabetic. Just wondering if older docs are just not updated to new trends or there is a reason why they still order FBS or RBS.

    Seen it now! I saw a similar article at Medscape about new guidelines for diagnosis diabetes. Docs just keep on ordering fbs/rbs.
