In brief: 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.

In brief: Better control

The A1c level is like a silent monitor floating thru your body.
It goes up if your average glycose level stays up & declines if your level stays in the recomended range. Keeping tighter control of your diet & excercise to the point that you get your numbers better over weeks & months is how you get it down. There is no easy fix.
