It is a rapidly expanding area aetiological to diabetes complications being associated with morbidity and mortality. Little is known of its prevalence and our aim was to explore this further.Method: From 31,119 paired estimations of HbA1c and fructosamine among 12,253 patients, we calculated the GGap as published.Results: GGap deviated −10.8 to +10.2 % based on HbA1c expressed as %The mean GGap was 0.0 ± SD 1.4: negative GGap 6,130 (19.7%, <=−1), neutral 18,683 (60%, <−1 to < +1), positive 6,306 (20.3, > = +1).This categorisation varied with HbA1c (X2 4805.42, p < 0.001) with positive GGap prevalence 1.9%
