Presenter: Associate Professor Ken Sikaris Ken Sikaris is a senior associate of the Department of Pathology and Director of Chemical Pathology at Melbourne University. He obtained Science and Medical degrees from Melbourne University in 1980 and 1984 before training as a chemical pathologist at several university hospitals. His day to day job is to supervise and interpret tens of thousands of chemical pathology results every day including thousands of HbA1c results for monitoring diabetes control. Dr Sikaris has lectured at local, national and international conferences on the topic of HbA1c. HbA1c units have changed across the world and HbA1c is now globally accepted as a diagnostic test for diabetes. This has resulted in a reappraisal of how HbA1c reflects our daily (or monthly) glucose variations and there are some important messages for interpretation of daily glucose monitoring. Finally, as a father of a teenager with type 1 diabetes, Ken has an intimate knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of HbA1c and the daily tribulations of blood glucose monitoring.
