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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, If you blood sugar is 12.3 mmol/L you are diabetic. If your HbA1c is 12.3 you have uncontrolled diabetes. Wish you good health!
