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, your A1c and lab glucose are normal. Losing weight will prevent your glucose tolerance getting worse. Wish you good health!

Good control. Keep up the good work. Too fat or too short?
