On a recent lab test noticed that my Glycosylated Hemoglobin was 6.3 and my doctor said you may be diabetic and suggested to repeat the tests in 3 months. I started testing my blood sugar last three days to get an understanding of my blood sugar levels. (Pls see below). I'm I diabetic? Appreciate your advise.

Your hemoglobin A1c was slightly elevated at 6.3 (we like to see it less than 6). A level of 6.5 or higher on two seperate occassions would indicate diabetes. A level of 6.3 would be considered pre-diabetes. Your blood sugars seem like they have been pretty good though. I think repeating the test in 3 months is a good plan. It is probably not necessary for you to be checking your blood sugars multiple times a day. Ask your doctor how often, if at all, he or she wants you to check your blood sugar. For the next 3 months, try being mindful of what you are eating and drinking- often dietary changes can make a big difference for pre diabetes. I hope this info helps. Good luck.
