    5.6 which I believe is in the 'normal ' range . Just no sugar or sugary foods . Moderate carbs.

    hA1c was 5.9 on 10/06/2017. My levels have been below 6.0 for about the past 2 years. My insurance will only allow hA1c test once every 6 months.

    Hi there, new to the forum, found this thread interesting, been having GTTs etc over past 30 years due to gestational diabetes when pregnant with all four kids. Been up and down this past year but got tested both at local gym and work in past week due to health checks and one reading was 7.1 the other 7.2. Trying to make an appointment with the doc but can't get one until next week. Just wondering if I should get a meter now to keep a closer check as only get checked at docs once a year ( previous doc did it every six months) what do you think ?? And is there o e meter better than the other ??
