A1c of 6.7 what do i do next

Hi to all,

I had my A1c test back today 6.7 on no diabetic meds at the moment but was told to review in 6 mnths if higher would need to go back on metformin or if higher insulin i dont know how i managed this when i have a cast on broke foot dec 28th thought my a1x would have been higher that it is so its worked out well for now could this because of diclofenac foor foot go back to hosp next week hope to get pot off.

The cut off point is 7.5 before change to happen.

The usual lifestyle recommendations for type 2 diabetes are:

* If you have excess body fat, lose it.

* Increase exercise. (If your broken foot has you in a wheelchair, use a manual wheelchair instead of a power wheelchair.)

* Choose carbohydrates carefully. Avoid high glycemic carbohydrates, which are typically sugars and refined carbohydrates. Choose instead low glycemic carbohydrates, which are typically fibrous vegetables, beans / lentils, some whole fruits, and some whole grains.
