Re: Question about A1c level
The a1c test can be translated into an overall average glucose level for the last 3 months (most accurate for the last 6 weeks). Your a1c converts to an average glucose of 112. This test measures the hemoglobin that has sugar stuck to it. What are your levels 2 hours after a meal? Often this number is out of whack before the fasting is.
You talk about your fasting being "barely in the pre-diabetes range". Your a1c is at the same point. Not quite pre-d, but close. You could try cutting back on carbs in general a bit and testing after meals to see how you are doing (should be less than 140, ideally less than 120).
