My glucose level is 73 but my hba1c is 7.8 am I diabetic? And what is the fastest way to decrease hba1c due to work requirement. Any food suggestions?

My glucose level is 73 but my hba1c is 7.8 am I diabetic? And what is the fastest way to decrease hba1c due to work requirement. Any food suggestions?

Yes: Hemoglobin a1c is a good measure of diabetes status. A normal reading is around 5. A reading of 7.8 is very abnormal. The good news is you can change that by what you eat - go low carb (search low carb diets on the internet). That number will change slowly though because a1c is a 3 month average of blood sugar levels. ...Read more

What can I do to lower my HbA1C and glucose levels? My last blood test over a year ago shower HbA1C 5.6 and glucose 83.... I still eat lots of sugar!!

What's the concern?: Eating sugar isn't really a factor when blood glucose is being evaluated. Maybe you can get your carbs in some other more wholesome form. Both your HgbA1c and glucose are fine. At age 24, you've got lots more worth your attention than fretting over labs. The key to preventing diabetes long-run -- and a huge help to one's emotions in a cruel world -- is staying aerobically fit. Best wishes. ...Read more

How can I get my hba1c levels down in 2 weeks I am 8.3 now?

Impossible: Since the a1c measures your average glucose level over the past three months, it is impossible to lower it in that short a time. However, it is important to begin now to lower your value toward normal and then keep it there forever. 8.3 is too high and can shorten your life. ...Read more

How can I reduce my hba1c level?

How can I reduce my hba1c level?

BG control: Hba1c % is almost always elevated because of higher-than-normal average blood sugars, usually in diabetes or prediabetes (impaired fasting glucose, glucose intolerance). Lowering bgs through diet, exercise, or medication should lower hba1c. However, hba1c can be transiently, falsely elevated, so it should be confirmed by repetition and supporting tests, e.g. Fasting bg before any therapy starts. ...Read more

Could you have diabetes if your fasting glucose level and hba1c levers are normal?

Could you have diabetes if your fasting glucose level and hba1c levers are normal?

Unlikely: If both HbA1c and fasting glucose are normal you are most likely fine.

This would have been reflected in the A1c though which is why I think you're probably fine! ...Read more
