Is Glucose a Reliable Index of Carbohydrate Metabolism
The determination of glucose concentration is the most frequently used clinical laboratory test. It was the current vehemence in discussions about the judgement criteria for the diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes that motivated this discussion of pathobiochemical and analytical aspects in a circle of 38 experts. The composition of the working group made it possible to copare the needs of clinical diabetologists and diabetics with the analytical possibilities. Pathobiochemistry, sampling problems, diabetic self control, analytical methods and their standardisation, glucose monitoring, glucose sensors and glycosylated proteins were the topics of this glucose workshop.
