This study investigated the correlation between blood chromium (III) concentrations in normal, mild hyperglycemia and severe hyperglycemia for hemoglobin A(1C) (HbA(1C)), serum insulin and serum lipid concentrations. Eighty-four elderly subjects (aged 40~70 years; 41 male and 43 female) were divided into three groups: Severe hyperglycemia group (fasting glucose > 8.3 mmol/L, n = 38), mild hyperglycemia group (fasting glucose = 7.0~8.3 mmol/L, n = 24) and normal group (fasting glucose
