There is considerable controversy concerning the clinical significance of different hemoglobin A1c values between different ethnic populations. The American Diabetes Association, the World Health Organization and other influential clinical groups have proposed that HbA1c ? 6.5% (48 mmol/mol) be used to diagnose diabetes for all patients. Other organizations advocate different HbA1c cutoffs for different ethnic and racial populations.
