Description

Hi,
I am interested in analysing HbA1c data which is available at xlabblood_ns dataset.
In the Biomarker User Guide it was mentioned that a number of factors are associated with decreased HbA1c measurements19 - chronic liver disease, taking aspirin (BNF chapter 2.9; derived variable bnf7_aspirin) and anti-inflammatory medications (BNF chapter 10.1; derived variable: bnf7_antiinflam). High levels of triglycerides may lead to artefactually low measurements. However those derived variables are not available (aspirin and anti-inflammatory) I looked in the (indresp_ns) file and nothing was there too.
My query is what are the variables of those medications and where can I find them as I need to adjust for in the model am using.

Best regards
