GlycoMark Updates for Healthcare Professionals Caring for Patients with Diabetes
SGLT-2 Inhibitors and the GlycoMark Test Issue 19 - July 2019
New Glycomark clinical data.
Dear Healthcare Professionals,

For patients you prescribe SGLT-2 inhibitors, new data presented at the ADA suggest the GlycoMark® Test is useful to assess the treatment effect.

SGLT-2 Non-COMPLIANT:
Patients not compliant with an SGLT-2 inhibitor had an average GlycoMark result of 6.4 μg/mL.
SGLT-2 COMPLIANT:
Patients treated with an SGLT-2 inhibitor had GlycoMark results ≤2 μg/mL (extremely low).
REMINDER!
SGLT-2 inhibitors lower glucose levels in patients with diabetes by preventing the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose, triggering glycosuria.

The GlycoMark Test, a measure of 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG), is highly sensitive to glycosuria and is used to detect recent hyperglycemia and hyperglycemic excursions. (Abnormal <10 μg/mL).

Include GlycoMark in your patient lab workup to enhance the patient’s evaluation and management of their diabetes.
