What metrics should be considered beyond HbA1c to best measure diabetes outcomes?

PoinTHbA1c, by itself, is not a good enough measurement of diabetes outcomes. Specifically, it really does not tell the story of how that number was achieved. It could have been achieved by having glucose in the range of 250 mg/dL and 50 mg/dL or by having a range between 80 mg/dL and 120 mg/dL. I would like to see other measurements that will help provide that answer. However, putting any new measures in place will require robust studies, validation and education.
