We sought to examine the correlation between variables and A1C levels to determine if prediction modeling could be used in the screening and diagnosis of diabetes and prediabetes in youth. We also sought to test relationships between A1C levels to insulin sensitivity indices and β-cell function indices. Design and methods: We performed a retrospective review of 904 medical records from youth deemed at-risk for the disease.
