Glycated hemoglobin is preferred over glycosylated hemoglobin to reflect the correct (non-enyzmatic) process. Early literature often used glycosylated as it was unclear which process was involved until further research was performed. The terms are still sometimes used interchangeably in English language literature. (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycated_hemoglobin)
