The concentration of HbA1c, glycosilated serum proteins and blood glucose were followed up during the first eight postnatal weeks in 10 preterm babies of mean (+/- SD) birthweight and gestational age of 1259 +/- 140 g and 30.2 +/- 2.0 weeks, respectively. Both blood glucose and the glucosilation of proteins remained unchanged over the study period. No relationship was found either between growth rate and blood glucose level, or the latter and HbA1c concentration. Statistically significant correlationship could be observed between carbohydrate and total calorie intake and growth rate, but only during the first four postnatal weeks.
