Data on 112,000 women ages 59 and older with type 2 diabetes found that those who had very high hemoglobin A1c levels were 50% more likely to suffer severe limitations from urinary incontinence compared with those who had lower blood glucose rates. The study presented at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association found, however, that high HbA1c levels alone did not predict the presence of incontinence among older women with diabetes.
