What you eat, how much you eat is the beginning of understanding. I never take readings after eating. ” A result between 5.7 and 6.4 percent is considered prediabetes, which indicates a high risk of developing diabetes. For most people who have previously diagnosed diabetes, an A1C level of 7 percent or less is a common treatment target.” taken from Mayo Clinic web page.
I was 7.2 the last time I had a A1C which was down from 7.6 previously. My Dr told me she would be happy if I got below 7.0. I take 200 units of insulin every day.
I personally do not like the prediabeties term, sounds to me like kind of pregnant. The below 100 numbers in the mornings are good to great. Remember this, you fast to take an A1C. Keep reading on the internet and I believe you will find that most Dr.’s are moving the 5% up to 6%. 5% was the OLD number is what I was told my by Endro.
