I am assuming that is good?

A1c is a blood test usually done every three months. It shows how high blood sugars in diabetics is running. (The average over 3 months)
In non-diabetics it is less than 6.
Doctors try to help diabetics achieve a goal of 7.
Without medicine my A1c was just under 17. dangerously high.
My blood sugars are not under control yet but they are getting there. Diabetics struggle with this disease everyday. It causes many complications.
Thank You for replying. I like explaining this stuff.

Outstanding! My A1c just crept over the line, so I need to get serious.
