Hi,

While 4.8 to 5.4 is considered extremely good control, many people think for a type one this is very tight as you might be hitting more Hypos. So according to me anything between 5 and 6 should be good.

Mine is 6.1 and my doctor says its fine but recently I read that I should be in a lower range.

Many struggle to do 6.1 even, that’s a great A1c.. congratulations! And we are sure you will be able to bring it in a lower range soon, do share your experience in doing so. Thanks.

Hi according to the new opinion it is recommended not to go to low with Hba1c  a range under 6,0 is after the old idea now stay over 6,0 something up to 6,5 is ideal.  For Kids 7,5.

On the contrary the A1c’s kept in range i.e. between 4.8% and 5.6% for a diabetic significantly reduces the risks of diabetic complications and also keeps the ageing process under check plus maintains optimal hormone production and thyroid function.

but do not achieve them via hypos please 
after the German DDG  ideal under or = 6,5
                                      very good under 7
                                      dangerous over 8 
but the are a lot of debates if there should be a so called ” best Hba1c …
