What Is The Normal Hb A1c Range
Below 5.7: Current guidelines suggest a hba1c of 6.5 or higher can be used to diagnose diabetes, and that levels of 5.7 to 6.4 can indicate "pre-diabetes". There is still some debate about whether using an A1c is the best way to look for diabetes. In general we identify and diagnose diabetes too late in our country and many times damage already exists when the diagnosis is first given. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HbA1C 5.4 (<5.5 normal). FBS 5.3 ( <6.0 normal) with last meal 14 hours before test. Family hx of diabetes. Is FBS too high? At risk range? Thnx.
My sugar blood test =101 after 12 h fasting and the hba1c =5.3 , I am so much worry about this , should I be ? Labs says that normal range is 75-115 ?
Father age 65 has Serum creatinine of 1.6,esr 22, high monocytes and esonophil count than normal range,renal cyst,gall stones. HBa1c 9.9%. Stents done?
HbA1c: It depends on lab normals. Mostly less than 6 percent. Now many define less than 5.7 percent as completely normal. ...Read more
Good control: The goal is an a1c of less than 7 and that correlates to a 90 day average blood sugar of 150 or less. Recent studies indicated that an a1c of 6 was not better than 7 for preventing complications of diabetes but was associated with increased episodes of low blood sugar which can be dangerous. ...Read more
Good for you: The ranges are set to include most but not all healthy folks. I would not be at all concerned -- in fact, as a lab physician / pathologist, i'd urge you simply to ignore any lab that's not clearly out of kilter unless there's a specific reason for concern. ...Read more
My BP is normally 120/80, hba1c is 7, age 53. I take 5 mg ramipiril daily. For the last few hours my BP has been 160/105. No idea why!
Proteinuria: The hba1c of 6.5% is consistent with overall good diabetes control. However, the microalbumin ratio is high, suggesting that you are leaking protein through your kidneys. This can be an early sign of diabetes affecting your kidneys. You should do a 24 hr urine collection for protein excretion to better assess this. You likely should be on a ace inhibitor or arb to help protect your kidneys. ...Read more
Wrong Test!: Hba1c reflects average sugars for a 3 months period. Virtually no one spends 3 months with a low blood sugar; rather they have episodes where their blood sugar drops low for up to 20-30 minutes at a time. These dips would not cause the average sugar level to drop low enough to be different than a normal hba1c. As dr lewy-weiss, advised, blood tests during the spells are needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rare but can occur: Either you are not checking your bs at the right time to see the highs, or you might have iron-deficiency anemia which can cause high hba1c without loss of glucose control. Certain vitamin deficiencies can raise hba1c, african american can have higher a1c, frequent blood transfusion can also do it. The best way to tease this out is to go on continuous glucose monitor. See your doc to discuss. ...Read more
Hi, my report says fasting sugar 97, pp 87 and hba1c 6.8%. Anything wrong or not normal? Please advice.....
Don't make sense: Your fasting and post-meal glucoses do not correspond to an elevated a1c of 6.8. Something is not correct with the testing or how the lab was done, and it should be repeated. Also, if the diuretic you're taking is hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) it should be stopped, as it can worsen Insulin resistance and increase lipids. Other diuretics are better if one is needed. ...Read more
25 years and male, After 14 hour fast my fbs =101(high) and my hba1c=5.4, why do I have high fbs but normal hba1c,am I pre-diabetic?
High FBS?: I would repeat the fasting FBS. and discuss with Drs in your area as they know the normal values for folks where you live. ...Read more
Discordance: A few possibilities: 1) your glucometer may not be giving you accurate readings. 2) you may be missing high blood sugars during times when you're not usually asked to test, like after meals. 3) you may not be testing enough to realize that you're high. 4) possible lab error with hba1c if your glucometer is ok and you're not missing highs. That would be a less common reason. ...Read more
Unlikely: If both HbA1c and fasting glucose are normal you are most likely fine. Occasionally people are having much higher sugars AFTER they eat (measured 2 hours) and are diabetic without knowing it. This would have been reflected in the A1c though which is why I think you're probably fine! ...Read more
My dad's Hba1c is below normal but fasting sugar checked today came as 7.83. What does this means? Really worried.
Fasting gluc. vs. A1: Hi. A1c is less sensitive for diagnosis than fasting glucose. And I doubt your dad's A1c is below the normal range; more likely it's somewhere near the upper end of the normal range (at least) if his fasting glucose is 7.83. He should see his doctor for formal testing and appropriate management. Healthy diet and regular exercise are mainstays. Good luck! ...Read more
