Healthy Glucose Numbers and HB1C Numbers
Is HBC1 6.1 considered diabetic and is 143 average considered diabetic?
Lifetime Fat Loss Answers:
HbA1C is a blood test of the hemoglobin in the blood that provides information on blood sugar levels over a period of at least 8 weeks. My understanding is that the normal range is 4 - 6%. It would be best for you to go to the doctor who ordered this test for you and discuss these results with him or her! Your doctor will have all the information you need to understand what these two numbers mean for you.
And if you haven't already done so eliminating white sugar and high glycemic carbohydrates from your diet is a great first step to managing your blood sugar. Talk to your doctor about a consistent form of aerobic exercise that's best for you too. Regular exercise like walking, swimming, bicycling, dancing, whatever you enjoy doing, is essential for blood sugar control.
If you are pre-diabetic, that is you have type 2 diabetes, then lifestyle changes will help you get it under control. For a guide to how you can make these changes to best manage your blood sugar and increase your insulin sensitivity, go to insulin resistance diet. Discuss this and any changes you make with your doctor.
As stated above your doctor will be the best person to advise you about your numbers and what they mean for you. It's always critical to make sure that you have a follow up appointment to discuss any lab work your doctor may have ordered.
