The AiC of 6.6% with treatment makes it very UNlikely to NOT be a diabetic (its very high for normal; pretty good for diabetic WITH TREATMENT). At really good levels, getting slightly better and moving into the category of not diabetic , impaired glycemic control occurs, but I think diabetic is more accurate. ...Read more
