Am I still considered diabetic with an A1c of 5.7?

I was told back in January my A1C was 6.6. I do not take medication but I cut back on carbs and my A1c is 5.7. So am I still considered diabetic?

  1. That's a great questions, Bookworm53! An A1C of 5.7% is right on the cusp of what's considered "pre-diabetes". It's important to remember that once diabetic, it is much easier for your A1C to rise again. Congratulations on the progress. I hope to hear more good news from you soon! -Samuel, Type2diabetes.com community moderator
