Could eating more carbohydrates increase a hemoglobin A1c test in a non-diabetic?

Probably not...: Your body has an incredible ability to regulate blood sugar levels and when this ability is intact, excess carbs will be converted and stored as fat, thus should not raise your a1c. Once the ability is diseased, the excess carbs/sugar stay as sugar, thus higher blood sugar in diabetic, and will raise your a1c over time. Moderation is key. Live a well-balance life. Live long. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Adrenals: Shaking is low sugar your sugar runs slightly above 100 per hba1c 5.0 =100. So you need to bring down stress via supporting adrenals which can be helped via 5 factors - magnesium, b vitamins, water 1/2 of body weight in oz per day, sleep at least 6-8 hours at night, adaptogen like herbs like adhs (vasopressin) from biotics. Take adhs (vasopressin) 2 pills in morning recheck hba1c in 1 month to show progress. ...Read more

My hemoglobin A1c was 11.1 on 2/07. Can that be lowered by losing weight and changing my eating habits? Can you get rid of diabetes?

My hemoglobin A1c was 11.1 on 2/07. Can that be lowered by losing weight and changing my eating habits? Can you get rid of diabetes?

Hb of 11.1: A hb a1c means you have a mean glucose of 272. That means it is much higher after meals. I am all for weight loss and exercise. I am also of the opinion that you need to see a endocrinologist and start some medication to get your hb a1c < 7. That should be your first priority. You probably cannot get rid of your diabetes. ...Read more
