I don't need a house to drop on me. I knew what these symptoms meant. I went to the eye doctor, even though I had just gotten a new pair of glasses at the start of the year. He checked my eyes and recommended new lenses and also that I should go the doctor, which I had already made an appointment for when I made the eye appointment.
More blood work and I was told I was borderline. He wrote me a prescription for medicine and gave me some pamphlets about diabetes. A couple weeks later I was back for a follow up and I was no longer borderline. I had diabetes. One of the tests they do is called A1C and its supposed to be under 6. My reading was 11.3.
In 2010, the ADA issued new guidelines regarding the A1C test. First, it can now be used as a test to diagnose diabetes. If you have a 6.5 percent level or above, you are considered to have diabetes. If you have a result between 6.0 percent and 6.5 percent, you are considered high risk.So yeah, that was little high.
