Is Hemoglobin A1c a good test for anti-glycation and AGEs?

Just wish to re-post here the discussion in the old forum:

http://forum.lef.org/default.aspx?f=35&m=56457

Mine increased (as well as insulin). I might have been sloppy with the Zone diet (was the only occasion I saw the marker decreasing) during the months prior to testing and the antiglycation agents I am taking not effective for this marker. Fasting Glucose is OK.

Comments?

Skin autofluorescence works well as marker for AGE

"Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are biomarkers of metabolic stress and are thought to contribute to the increase of coronary heart disease (CHD) in diabetes. Tissue autofluorescence is related to the accumulation of AGEs. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between skin autofluorescence and metabolic burden (hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia) and its relationship with CHD and mortality"
