You have prediabetes if A1c is 5.7-6.4, and fasting blood glucose is 100-125. Diabetes for A1c 6.5 or above and FBG 126 or above. Practically speaking, diabetes complications are avoided if A1c remains below 7. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Does the length of fasting affect fasting glucose levels?

Fasting Glucose: There are variations based on length of fasting but basically the test is checking if you have normal regulation of your blood sugar - checks if it is too high while fasting (i.e. diabetes) or too low (i.e. hypoglycemia) or if it is within normal limits. Too short of a fasting time may reflect the food still being absorbed from the stomach/gut. If longer than recommended, not likely to matter. ...Read more
