Different A1C values means different risks of diabetes. The following chart is a common reference:
A1c Level What It Means
Less than 5.7% Normal (minimal Risk for Type 2 Diabetes)
5.7% to 6.4% “Prediabetes,” meaning at risk for developing type 2 diabetes
6.5% or greater Diagnosed diabetes
Except for the A1c test, there are many other blood sugar tests you can take.   Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=615 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=617 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=641
