No: The hemoglobin A1c is a measure of the amount of hemoglobin that is bound to glucose (blood sugar) in red blood cells. Red blood cells live about 120 days, so the A1c gives an idea of diabetic control over 3 months. Eating on the day of the test will make no difference. Be sure, though, that no other tests, such as fasting lipid panel or fasting chemistries, have been ordered along w a1c. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To actually put context to these labs, it is always advisable to seek your physician to interpret them properly and apply them to your case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CMP drawn and glucse was 92, non fasting. Is that normal? Haven’t felt good for a while. Dr didn’t order A1C. Should I ask for it?
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, random glucose of 92 is not suggestive of even pre-diabetes, let alone diabetes.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Means not done: Not important. BUN & creat are what you need to have normal. It could be because one of the numbers is reported as "less than" e.g. BUN < 5 (less than 5).
