Clin Chim Acta. 2001 Sep 25;311(2):157-9. doi: 10.1016/s0009-8981(01)00579-4.


A diabetes control and complications trial (DCCT)-aligned 95% inter-fractile reference range for glycated haemoglobin in non-diabetic pregnancy was determined as 4.1-5.9% (n=493; two-sided 90% confidence intervals around the lower and upper limits are 4.0-4.2% and 5.8-6.0%, respectively).
