NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- GlycoMark®, Inc. has announced a partnership with Premier Medical Laboratory
"As an industry leader, we strive to provide physicians with innovative solutions that enable the best possible care for patients," said Melanie Stallings, Director of Laboratory Operations of Premier Medical Laboratory Services. "We believe that the GlycoMark test provides important additional information to help physicians personalize patient treatment plans and drive better clinical outcomes."
Hyperglycemia, which leads to numerous diabetic vascular complications, isn't always easily detected. Nearly 40% of patients who are deemed to be in "good control", based on A1C glucose averages, may have significant postprandial hyperglycemia or glycemic variability. Furthermore, a periodic blood glucose is not always reliably timed or performed, and may yield inaccurate results.
"We are very pleased with our partnership with Premier Medical Laboratory. By adding the GlycoMark test to PMLS's MD DiabeticPro menu, physicians will have increased awareness and access to the test to help improve the management of patients with diabetes," said Hiro Ishibashi, President of GlycoMark, Inc.
GlycoMark, Inc., based in Manhattan, New York, is dedicated to improving the management and health of patients with diabetes. The company is a joint venture among Toyota Tsusho America, Inc. (New York, NY), Toyota Tsusho Corporation (Tokyo, Japan), and Nippon Kayaku Co., Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan), and is the exclusive supplier of the GlycoMark test in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Indonesia and the Middle East. The GlycoMark test is the only FDA cleared non-fasting blood test that detects hyperglycemia and hyperglycemic excursions occurring in the prior 1 to 2 weeks. Since its discovery, the GlycoMark Test, a quantitative test for 1,5-Anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG), has been described in more than 1,300 scientific and medical publications and is shown to be independently associated with complications of diabetes.
