HbA1C Test Results

Postby tnwldflwer » Wed Jul 06, 2005 5:09 pm

I had a blood fasting test done at the first part of June that came back with my blood sugar levels being a 126. My doctor ordered a HbA1C test done which I had done about 2 weeks ago. I just got a call from my doctors office telling me that my doctor has looked over the results and I am being diagnosed with Diabetes Type II. What I can not seem to find out is if my results really say that or not. The nurse said my A1C test results were a 6.3. Would this be considered Diabetes or maybe Pre-Diabetes? I don't want either but I would like to know if I am really considered diabetes or if I am really in the Pre-Diabetes stage. Can someone tell me what the limit for normal range is for the A1C test?

Thank you. Now this makes me wonder what the heck to think of my doctors call yesterday, but it gives me something to work with. Thanks again.

A1c diabetes test

Postby Rhonda P, CEP » Mon Jul 11, 2005 2:02 am

Hello,

I will write this out just incase the link doesn’t work for everyone.

A1c may also be known as Hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, Glycohemoglobin, Glycated hemoglobin, Glycosylated hemoglobin tests.

The following numbers can change depending upon the doctor or the chart you might follow but this is the general rule:

FASTING PLASMA GLUCOSE (FPG)
Normal – less than 100 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter)
Pre-Diabetes – 100 mg/dL – 125 mg/dL
Diabetes – greater than 126 mg/dL usually on two or more tests


ORAL GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST (OGTT)
Normal – less than 140 mg/dL
Pre-Diabetes – 140 mg/dL to 199 mg/dL
Diabetes – greater than 200 mg/dL

HbA1c – normal is 5% or less
Values above 7% means your diabetes is poorly controlled
Sincerely,
Rhonda, Paramedic
