What is the source for this statement:

"A normal HbA1c runs from 4.0-5.2 or so."


What was the definition of "normal" which yielded a population with those A1C figures?

Usually when your bgs begin to creep up above normal range, it means that your pancreas is not working efficiently. Eating low carb allows us to get near normal bgs but the minute we go back to old high carb ways our numbers creep up. I do think many Americans, me included were addicted to carbs. The best way to live a healthy life is to make changes of the way we eat for life. I would think most of us who practice low carb eat pretty well and we are fantastic cooks making all sorts of desserts, appetizers and snacks. I think I am a better cook now than before diabetes. Your old way of eating was an unhealthy way of eating and sadly you have done your body a favor by going low carb.
