The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of Glycosylated HbA1c as diagnostic test and indicator for the severity of diabetes mellitus. Thirty six rabbits purchased from the local market, weighing 1.2-2 kg were used in the experiment. The animals were divided according to the gender into two groups and each was equally divided into diabetic and control group.
The results revealed highly significant difference in glycosylated HbA1c concentrations between diabetic groups and control groups, and the glycosylated Hb1c concentrations gradually increased after onset of diabetes, also the result revealed that values in diabetic males increased more than in than diabetic females (P<0.05) as well as the result revealed that the concentration of glycosylated Hb1c were increased with the increased serum glucose concentrations. The conclusion that a high HbA1c represents poor glucose control and higher levels of HbA1c are found in experimental animals with persistently elevated blood sugar, as in diabetes mellitus.
