General health and Diabetes indicators

Taking control of your health

Good diabetes management isn’t just about blood glucose monitoring. Preventing complications associated with diabetes requires the monitoring and management of several indicators:

Average Blood Glucose

Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) is a true reflection of the average blood glucose or blood sugar level over the last three months. It is an important indicator of how well or poorly diabetes is being managed. A normal value is below 5.7%. A pre-diabetes state is determined with values between 5.7% and 6.4% and from 6.5% onwards a patient is considered diabetic. A reference value for a person with diabetes may be to keep the HbA1c around 7.0%

Time in Range

Time in range indicates the percentage of time in which the blood glucose value was within the target range. It is a very important measurement because just as the HbA1c determines an average, more quantitative value, Time in Range provides a qualitative measurement. That is, the adequate control of diabetes, without peaks of hyperglycaemia or hypoglycaemia. It is measured as a percentage, which indicates how long we are within the target parameters.

Metabolic Age

The Metabolic age is the value resulting from comparing the basal metabolic rate of a person with the average value of the population of the same age. This value measures the metabolic and cardiovascular risk profile of a person.
A metabolic age lower than the chronological one indicates that the metabolic and cardiovascular risk is lower than expected for your age, while a metabolic age higher than the chronological age would indicate a higher metabolic and cardiovascular risk than expected and desired.

Quality of Life

Health-related Quality of Life is a subjective assessment of a person's current state of health and their ability to achieve an overall level of functioning that allows them to carry out activities that are important to their well-being. At Sendo we use standardised and validated questionnaires to evaluate the evolution of this important indicator.
