A study in Diabetes Care revealed that children with high-risk A1C levels were more likely to be black, have a family history of diabetes and have higher body mass index, waist size and fasting insulin levels than children with A1C levels of less than 5.7%. Researchers also found that impaired fasting glucose was more likely to occur in Hispanic children, those with higher BMI, waist size and fasting insulin levels and those with hypertension and higher average triglyceride rates compared with children who had lower plasma glucose levels.
