How low is too low for an HbA1c? Many of us try hard to get our HbA1c close to 7% as research has consistently shown that diabetic complications are generally reduced with tighter blood glucose control. However, there has been discussion whether HbA1c targets under 7% could be too low as a target. Read this above tonight and thought you beauty if its for real I broke the 8 barrier on my last test (8.1) but, was in the 7's previously and I had been a bad boy the past while Anyway, what I would like to know is, what is an acceptable range for HbA1c ? Given the above info, is 7 to 7.5 good or is up to 8 not the end of the world ?
