A1c a control marker: A1c is a long term marker for glucose levels in the body. It will go up to higher levels when the blood sugar levels are above recomended levels and declines when you keep your sugars in a healthy range.

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.

You probably cannot get rid of your diabetes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
