GONZALEZ PEDRAZA AVILES, Alberto et al. USEFULNESS OF GLYCOSYLATED HEMOGLOBIN AS AN INDICATOR OF KIDNEY FUNCTION IN DIABETIC AND NON-DIABETIC OLDER ADULTS. Rev. Méd. La Paz [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.2, pp. 18-24. ISSN 1726-8958.

OBJECTIVE: To correlate the renal functionality degree according to K-DOQUI classification with the glycemic control through the percentage of glycated hemoglobin and serum glucose, in elder diabetic from the diabetes module and to compare it with the non-diabetic patients from the gerontological module. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two groups were included, the first one consisting of diabetics from the diabetes module, the second one of non-diabetics from the gerontological module. No probabilistic of convenience sample in adults over 60 years, an identification card was applied, it was sent to the clinic's laboratory for taking products and determine the renal functionality based on the patients K-DOQUI degree. U Man Whitney, t Student for independent samples, Square Xi, and Spearman correlation were used. Significance level 0.05 Statistical Program SPSS 18 V. RESULTS: 240 total patients. For renal functionality 9 patients from the diabetes module presented stage 4, by 6 patients from the gerontological module (p=0.455). For glycemic control of glycated hemoglobin the average for diabetes module was 6.8%, and 6.2% for gerontological module (p=0.000). While associating the renal function and glycemic control of glycated hemoglobin, a direct association was obtained, with a statistical significance for the diabetes module (p=0.002). For the gerontological module there was no association (p=0.118). CONCLUSIONS: Unlike the control group, for the non-diabetic group a direct association between glycemic control and kidney failure was obtained, though its correlation was low.
