I really just don’t understand this. How can my HB A1c be usually 5.3 and I eat bad a lot of the times not all of the time and my numbers can go as high as 189 and my A-1 C still stay in normal range? Because of this I am not labeled prediabetic anymore as I was when my A-1 C was 6.1. I don’t take any medication for diabetes. I eat junk food but I drink diet pop very little water some candy some chips pizza now and then cake at birthday parties ice cream and birthday parties candy when I see it laying around like in Halloween and my numbers go fairly high but never over 189 yet my A1c remains at 5.3? I know that any numbers over 140 can create damage but how long does it have to stay there? My numbers seem to come down fairly quickly so that is good I guess but I know that I should not allow her to go that high and I try not to but I’m a junkie carbs junk sugar . I try my best to control my urges there are times when mashed potatoes get the best of me sandwiches get the best of me even though I eat low-carb bread with 23 carbs for two slices that doesn’t do too much damage. Small bowls of cereal, Wendy’s etc Any thoughts on this?
