Abstract

The factors affecting glycated hemoglobin concentration were examined in a cohort of children attending diabetes camp. Multivariate regression analysis revealed that frequency of self-monitoring of blood glucose correlated with lower glycated hemoglobin, whereas the number of insulin types used correlated with increased glycated hemoglobin. Frequent self-monitoring of blood glucose promotes long-term metabolic control.
