New York, NY (June 4, 2019) — GlycoMark, Inc. announces new data on the GlycoMark® test in patients on SGLT-2 inhibitors are being presented June 8 – 10 at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Scientific Sessions 2019 in San Francisco. The GlycoMark test, an FDA-cleared and CE-marked blood test used to monitor glycemic control in patients with diabetes, is uniquely sensitive and specific to detecting high blood glucose levels and glucose variability occurring during the prior 1 to 2 weeks. A low (abnormal) GlycoMark result indicates poor glucose control including postprandial glucose variability, which can be missed in up to 40% of patients with a “good” A1C.1 The new study “GlycoMark 1,5-Anhydroglucitol Values in Patients Taking SGLT-2 Inhibitors”will be on display in the Clinical Therapeutics/New Technology–SGLT Inhibitors poster sessions Hall F, North, Exhibition Level, June 8 - 10, and attended by GlycoMark Clinical Affairs and study co-author on Sunday, June 9 from 12 - 1 p.m. For interviews or to schedule a meeting with GlycoMark during the ADA Scientific Sessions, please email GlycoMark@L3healthcare.com.
The GlycoMark Test has not been FDA cleared for monitoring SGLT-2 inhibitor effect. The GlycoMark test is for professional use, and is indicated for the intermediate term monitoring of glycemic control in people with diabetes.
