Welcome. According to who you listen to , the ADA or other groups. The ADA uses 7% as good control . The Association of Endo uses 6.5. My doctor wants mine under 6 to prevent damage. How much metformin are you taking. I take the maximum- 2550 which was what I needed to find control. When I turned 50 I decided I was overweight from too many pregnancies. Thank you kids. I took off 50 pounds in 5 years by working out at the gym and playing tennis at least 2-3 hours a day. After 7 years of this I was dx'd diabetic. I was 148 and very muscular. I am now 112 and a lot less muscular but bgs are much better and A1c is 5.9. It started off around 10. As far as your other numbers your HDL is pretty good, LDL is high. Trigs are under the 150 which is normal. Do you know what your total cholesterol is.
