Fasting Plasma Glucose test reports HB A1c [HPLC] as 5.80% (5.7-6.4) and says "per-diabatic". What are some diet and lifestyle recommendations?

In brief: Low carb/grain diet

cut our grains/limit starches and increase good fats (olive oil, avocado, nuts).
have good animal based protein intake (including organic eggs and fish). A1C of 5.8% is indeed in the impaired range and should normalize with the above diet and 10-20% weight loss if extra weight is present
