Why Do Type 1 Diabetic Patients Have To Increase Their Hemoglobin A1c
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. Since the sugar level can go up or down dramaticly over less than hour, A1c is a better overall gage of long term control than your test diary (& you can't fudge the value). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diabetes: As a diabetic, your a1c reflects the control of your sugar levels over the long term. Weight management, low carb diet, regular aerobic exercise are all lifestyle issues which help control sugar. Medications to control your diabetes will also assist in reaching the ideal a1c. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not...: Your body has an incredible ability to regulate blood sugar levels and when this ability is intact, excess carbs will be converted and stored as fat, thus should not raise your a1c. Once the ability is diseased, the excess carbs/sugar stay as sugar, thus higher blood sugar in diabetic, and will raise your a1c over time. Moderation is key. Live a well-balance life. Live long. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Help? I have recently learned that my hemoglobin A1c level is at 7.7. What does this mean in terms of diabetes?
Hemoglobin a1c 5.7. No diabetes anywhere in my family and I weigh 108 lbs and I'm 29. I don't eat much sugar at all. Is this still a concern?
No: If fasting for at least 8 hours fasting sugar 100-125 is pre-diabetes and 2-hrs after eating 140-199 is prediabetes.

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. I am also of the opinion that you need to see a endocrinologist and start some medication to get your hb a1c < 7. That should be your first priority. You probably cannot get rid of your diabetes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diabetic measure.: The HgbA1C is a measure reflective of your degree of diabetic control in the long term. It essentially represents a three month average of your fingersticks, as if you took a fingerstick every minute, night and day, eating and fasting, for three months straight and then averaged them all. Technically, it's the percentage of red blood cells that have glucose attached to them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
