Diabetes: If your hemoglobin a1c is 4.9, then you are definitely not diabetic at this time. If you have family history, see your doctor yearly for repeat screening.

Relax. not diabetic: You may be predisposed to develop diabetes if you become overweight, even more so if you become obese. Right now you are none of the above.
