A1C

Is it safe to have an A1C lower than 5.8. My A1C was recently taken and I am wondering
how safe one can go below

Normal A1c levels are 4-5% [68-99 mg/dl]. Some doctors, however, feel up to 6% [125 mg/dl] is normal. Considering 125 mg/dl is prediabetes and bordering on diabetes, I don't see the reasoning behind this. An A1c of 5.8% equates to daily average of 120 mg/dl. HTH
