Diabetes: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, a Hb A1c level of 7.4 is diabetes, unless proven otherwise. You should contact your doctor to ensure proper treatment. Wish you good health.
