Normal: These glucose & A1C readings are all in normal range, & a low BMI of 22 should keep you at low risk of developing type 2 diabetes if you maintain that healthy weight & stay active . If you have a strong family history of type 2 diabetes you still may want to have labs checked about once a year.
