Comment from: Vic, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: May 04

I just received my hemoglobin A1c test result today: a 6.1 level. It was listed as abnormal. I have a follow-up appointment next week. I am a 55-year-old female and am about 40 pounds overweight. I am 5 feet 3 inches tall.

My grandson who is 7 years old recently had an A1C level of 6.1. This was up from 6 months ago when it was 5.7. He is very thin and very active. There is no family history of diabetes. However, I am very worried. He is scheduled for another test.

I'm 5'4, 130 pounds, 50 year old female who just got an A1C test back that was at 6.0. My doctor doesn't seem concerned at all. He just said to watch what I eat. Does this mean I will end up with diabetes for sure if I don't watch what I eat? My CBC also came back and my WBC is still falling. It is now 3.7. I don't think this has anything to do with my sugar.

A1c now 5.4, my prior glucose (Feb) was about 350 and I lost 30 pounds and went on strict diet. Cholesterol-188, hdl-42, triglycerides 130, bp 124/83. Weight 205 (17% body fat) age 53 6'3.” All in all, fairly normal profile. Took 8 months with a mostly vegetarian diet, sugars mainly from fruit. Lifestyle changes do work! Good luck to everybody! Just started exercise, lowers my blood sugar about 15 an hour.

Being a new type 2 diabetic for a year, I came close to losing a limb or my life because my internal doctor did have me use a glucose meter. I learned the hard way he was checking my sugars by my A1C which were good. But between them I was having highs and lows. No foot care/or referral for foot doc. No diet teaching. I just happen to be in a city when I got ill and had excellent care.
