Q:

A1c and Blood sugar....I showed my Dr. My sugar Level records and she said it was within normal...194 to a low of, 111 which is unusual. A high of over 200 hasn't been for quite awhile...since I started taking cinnamon and cromium. I take 1 of each a day. I wonder if that has actually made a difference. She said my A1C is 7.4 previously and will test in 2 mo. I take 1500 mgs of Metformin a day. Am I diabetic or not? I've never had the increased thirst etc. nor a sudden weight loss as some say.

A:

A1C is one of the tests used to establish the diagnosis of diabetes. An A1C of greater than or equal to 6.5% establishes the diagnosis of diabetes. Therefore, if your A1C was 7.4%, you have diabetes.
