Table 2 Glycemic control parameters among the enrolled hemodialysis patients

From: Glycated albumin is a better indicator of the glucose excursion than predialysis glucose and hemoglobin A1c in hemodialysis patients

  All patients (n = 90) Diabetic patients (n = 46) Nondiabetic patients (n = 44) P valuea
