Last September when I went in for my physical my blood test came back at 135 so he sent me in for an A1C which came back as 6.0 He told me I was pre diabetic but I can control it with diet. Last December I went back for another A1C test and it came back as 5.9 which was great. Since then I have revamped my diet (ate a lot of processed foods and fast food). Exercise never was an issue for me as I walk daily and I have lost about 10 pounds since then too. I have since bought a home monitor kit and check my sugar on and off. About a week ago in the am (before breakfast) it was 95. I tested it again this afternoon (after lunch - chineese food I'm afraid) and it was 139. The information I've been getting from websites considers this to be in the normal range. Is this true?
I guess what I am really asking is what is the normal am range and pm range? Some say am read should be 90-125 and pm no more than 189.
