Translating HbA1c measurements into estimated average glucose values in pregnant women with diabetes

The HbA1c–average glucose relationship is altered by pregnancy.

Instead, the pregnancy-specific estimated average glucose values deduced in the current study are recommended for antenatal clinical care.
