Postprandial hyperglycemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and mortality. Serum 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG) level is an useful clinical marker of glucose metabolism which reflects postprandial hyperglycemia more robustly compared to hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). Relationship between serum 1,5-AG level and cardiovascular disease has been reported; however, comparison between HbA1c and ...
