NGSP and the College of American Pathologists (CAP), 2020
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that HbA1c tests should be performed using a method that is certified by NGSP. Participation in a proficiency testing survey (external quality assessment), such as the CAP GH5 fresh whole blood HbA1c program, allows individual laboratories to compare their performance against peer groups and against the target values assigned by NGSP.
The survey data from the first CAP survey in 2020, GH-5a, show absolute mean bias for each method group analyzed, which ranged from 0.00 to 0.26% HbA1c. There were no methods with a bias >0.30% HbA1c. Method-specific, between-laboratory coefficient of variation (CV) ranged from 1.0 to 4.2%. There were six methods with CVs ≤2% for 5 out of 5 samples and approximately 72% of laboratories are using methods with between-lab CVs <3% at all five (or all 3) HbA1c levels.

The American Diabetes Association standards of care - 2023 guidelines provide recommendations for healthcare providers regarding cardiovascular disease (CVD) and risk management in people with diabetes. The authors highlight that atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and heart failure (HF) are leading causes of morbidity and mortality for people with diabetes, noting that simultaneously addressing cardiovascular (CV) risk factors can con...

The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KIDGO) 2022 clinical practice guidelines are based on a systematic review of evidence and aim to assist health care professionals with their decision making for people with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The authors highlight that by 2045, 784 million people are estimated to have diabetes globally, of whom ≥40% will develop CKD, potentially leading to kidney failure requiring dialysis or ...

The objective of this longitudinal cohort study was to determine the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and associated risk factors in a rural South African population. The authors note that infectious and non-communicable disease are a substantial risk for CKD in Africa, but that heterogeneity in assessment and diagnostic criteria hamper the interpretation of prevalence.
