s/o A1C test - I have a question


Recommended Posts

I just had my annual physical and in addition to the regular fasting blood sugar test, my dr. had the lab do an A1C. It came back slightly elevated, at a 5.8.


I definitely indulged in several sweet treats over Christmas, so I'm wondering how much this could have influenced the A1C test? (I have a feeling that if I'd done the test before the holidays it would have come back normal.)


My FBS has always been fine, but I do have a family history of diabetes and I am overweight. I've already started cutting out carbs and sugar, now I just need to get on an exercise plan!
