My A1c 10 and Blood Glucose 150, what does this mean?
The A1c test measures the average glucose (blood sugar) in the blood by assessing the amount glycated hemoglobin.
“Hemoglobin” is a protein fulfills red blood cells.
When glucose enters the bloodstream, it binds to hemoglobin molecule, this process makes the hemoglobin to be “glycated”.
An A1C level below 5.7 percent is considered normal.
see: A1c chart.
Consequently, A1c 10 is very high this means high average blood glucose over past 3 months not a measure of today’s hgb A1c.
Therefore you may fix your sugar level today but you have been neglected in the treatment of diabetes treatment in recent months.
This may be a reason, another one may be you an issue of you pancreas but this is unlikely seen for such blood test results.
A lot of juices and drinks would cause blood sugar to be spiking, eating more fiber can help.
When you increase insulin intake by high doses will cause complicated increase ad decrease in blood A1c test results.
The following supplements can lower A1c result:
Chromium. This trace element plays a role in blood sugar regulation by working with insulin to help transport glucose into cells.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA).
Excessive work in blood sugar management programs to lower your A1C can complicate a1c
Exercise more times a week.
