Abstract

Glycosylated hemoglobin was compared in 22 unselected endometrial carcinoma cases 1-10 years (mean ± SD = 3.3 + 2.8) after diagnosis and in 939 controls, a representative population sample in the same age range tested for oral glucose tolerance. Relative weight was similar in patients and controls. Glycosylated hemoglobin was significantly increased (p < 0.01) in the cases. The distribution of glycosylated hemoglobin indicated that most if not all of the cases had at least impaired glucose tolerance. These results support a true association of glucose intolerance and endometrial carcinoma.
