    Abstract

    • An international consensus statement recommends that dual reporting of haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels - in the current units (percentage) and Système International (SI) units (mmol/ mol) - be used as an interim measure for a 2-year transition period before progressing towards the use of SI units only. • This recommendation is supported by the Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemists, the Australian Diabetes Educators Association, the Australian Diabetes Society and the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia. • The SI units are a true measure of HbA1c and remove potential confusion between HbA1c values and blood glucose values.
