I think Hubby's DN was having a hard Monday, When she told Hubby his latest HbA1c result (7.1) Hubby remarked that he was getting closer to the 6.5% where diabetes is diagnosed and obviously hoped to get it lower still. The DN said 'Well 6.5-7.5% really.' As far as I'm aware there isn't a 'range'. If you are diagnosed 6.5% then you are diabetic. You don't get to choose ! Because if you weren't classed as diabetic until 7.5% then he would be pre-diabetic at this stage ! I'm not wrong am I-nothings changed ??
