I have some good news to share. My latest blood test results, HbA1c to be exact (tested end Sep 08) is 5.3%, down from 6.1% in end May 08. I must say that i am absolutely thrilled as i was only aiming for about 5.8% and i was like wow, 5.3%…that’s alot.
I still remembered when i saw second Doctor and my HbA1c rose by 0.1% from 6.3 to 6.4% and he actually called me up to tell me he has bad news for me. Now i am doing a 0.8% reduction, he will definitely fall off his chair if he hears it.
According to the charts, a person’s HbA1c ideal range is from 4.6 to 6.4%. What does it mean? Have i reversed prediabetes? Frankly speaking i don’t know and i actually forgot to ask my Doctor because i was too happy. In any way, i would wait for at least another re-confirmation HbA1c test to be done 3 months later to confirm.
