Although I read a C.E. article which included charts showing
retinopathy vs. FBG, 2hr PP, and A1c which showed that all three
had a particular level at which the slope of the curve changed from approx. zero to whatever made a 60-degree angle at the scale(s) chosen.
There were similar charts. If I remember right, some of them
were on Pima indians and some were not.
On the particular chart I mentioned first, that "specific blood
sugar level where the incidence of diabetic complications suddenly
shot up" was A1c of 5.4
I don't recall the FBG and 2hr PP numbers, and I realize that there
are different ways of measuring A1c, but the point is that whether
those epidemiologists were aware of it or not, that information is
certainly available now.
