Background:HbA1c is widely used as a screening test for diabetes mellitus, In addition, HbA1c ≥6.5% (48mmol/mol) is recommended as the cutoff point for diagnosing diabetes mellitus (DM). This study aimed to find out the effect of iron deficiency anaemia on HbA1c levels in non-diabetic individuals.Methods:A case control study was conducted in outpatient Clinic of Internal Medicine Department in Zagazig University Hospitals from the period of February 2019 to September 2019. Included 90 cases, the subjects have been divided into 3 groups; Group1: Include 30 persons who are healthy. Group2: Include 30 persons who have iron deficiency anaemia. Group3: Include 30 persons who have any type of anaemia other than iron deficiency anaemia. Detailed history of clinical examination and biochemical examination was performed including HbA1c. Results: The study revealed that there was high significant difference between the before and after treatment in iron deficiency group as regard HbA1c and there was no significant difference between the studied groups as regard FBG or PPG. Conclusion: There is significant relation between HbA1c and iron deficiency anemia while there is no relation between iron deficiency anemia and Fasting blood sugar or Post prandial sugar, Iron deficiency anemia elevates HbA1c levels in non-diabetic individuals.
