alunke82, it sounds like you have a lot going on. Unfortunately, no one on this forum is able to give you medical advice or even attempt at a diagnosis (which is against our forum rules.)

However,since you have a meter, you should be able to determine if you do, or don't, have a problem metabolizing the carbohydrates in your meal.

I suggest you do some reading on Blood Sugar 101 to become more familiar with diabetes. The section "How To Lower Your Blood Sugar" is a good method for testing which should give you the information you need.

HbA1c and A1c are the same thing, the values you gave are just showing in different units of measurement, as shown in the quote below. The values you gave indicate to be tests run at different visits to your doctor, or there was an error in the sample gathering/testing process if taken at the same time.

Here is a comparison of the the 2 measuring systems from a Doc's Opinion Blog.

Here’s how HbA1c levels are interpreted in clinical practice:

For people without diabetes, the normal range is 4-5.9% (20-41 mmol/mol)

HbA1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% (39–47 mmol/mol) indicate increased risk of diabetes (prediabetes)

Diabetes is defined as HbA1c > 6.5% (48 mmol/mol)
In the Bloodsugar101, read the section on organ damage. It can start happening anytime your BG goes above 7.8. After reading Bloodsugar101, you might want to consider finding another doctor.

Welcome to the forum, continue testing and reading, and do come back and let us know how things go.

edit>Reading thru your post a second time. possibly your first number listed is really just your BG level at the time of testing and not your HbA1c as stated, since you are saying it is mmol. If that is the case, then the doctor may be technically right and you are at the highest value of normal, but your blood sugar tests are saying something is going on to give you elevated numbers that are getting into the range of being capable of causing organ/nerve damage and if it continues your A1c will step up out of "Normal"
