Yes: Actually if you don't become overweight or pregnant (gender not listed) I would not bother testing for many years. If it is your doctors usual practice to get blood work with a physical every 3 years or so it is fine to include this test. Otherwise your numbers are okay & I wouldn't worry about it.

Your age?: It truly depends on your age. If you are over 45, the ADA recs are annual screening: HbA1c and fasting glucose. And yes, getting labs is a pain isn’t it? But your well-being is so important to you and your family. So it is worth it I promise!

Yes, I understood your question, sir. And every three years after 45 years old. It didn't say your age on the iPhone app, so my apologies for that. For you, you can wait every 5 years until you're 45. It shows your age on my laptop but not the phone app.
