Pre type 2 for 25 years with A1C between 5.6 and 6.2 could this be my normal????

After 25 years never paying attention to limiting carbs and having that range, I'm beginning to thing this might be my normal range. Has anyone else been classified as being pre type 2 so long.
Should I be concerned?

  1. Thanks for sharing and reaching out. Sounds like you are stable in your A1c readings for awhile now, which is great. While this may be your normal range, it is still on the high side and you are still considered to be at increased risk. This article on prediabetes may be helpful to you: https://type2diabetes.com/what-is-t2d/types/prediabetes. I'd encourage you to keep doing what you're doing and consider making some small attainable changes to better your health. The longer you can avoid that A1c creeping up the better.

    1. For 25 years your sugars have been between 5.2 and 6.2 I think that’s quite an accomplishment, you should give yourself a big pat on the back. I have Type 2 also and been controlling it by diet and excercise for 10 years and my A1c have been between 5.2 and 6.3. When I was diagnosed they were 9.
