In brief: Under 6
Most laboratories will list the normal range of hba1c as 4-5.
9. If you have diabetes your doctor will probably try to get your hba1c below 6.5 - but if it can go lower that is good.

Doing everything you can with diet and exercise to help avoid diabetes is important. Once present be sure to work wioth your physician to decide what "number" is right. trying to get an A1C low with medications can actually cause more trouble such as hypoglycemia
In brief: HgA1c
Depending on the laboratory performing the test, a normal hba1c is around 5.
6 or less.
