    Mine was 46 (6.4%) last 12 Dec 2017.
    I was told it was a pre-diabetic range.

    Huge drop from 85 (13%) on diagnosis last Sept 2017!

    Next one is end of Jan 2018.

    Do you just want me to say you have done well and are a bit of a smart arse ?
    Well then yes, you have done brilliantly and if that avatar is the real you I think you have no further worries.

    HbA1c 34 (mainly due to more muscle mass I presume and 2 weekly 4 hours trip to the fitness center) and average lower carbing 150-200 grams daily

    08.12.16 = 5.6% 37.7
    07.03.17 = 5.4% / 35.5
    13.06.17 = 5.4% / 35.5
    04.12.17 = 5.4% / 35.5

    I have gone on to six month hba1c testing.

    Mine was 46 in November and i was chuffed to bits :) I'm not sure when I'll have the next one but guessing it might be Feb/March time. I'm trying to stick to the 16.8 diet and low-ish carbs in the hope that I can bring it down a little bit more!

    Everyone knows my feelings about the HbA1c test. Too many anomalies for my liking. ;)

    And just to add ..... it isn't a competition!

    That is a wonderful result! I was diagnosed with measurement of 55, I'm self testing and all meals, except one, has come in at under 7 (the high one was 7.4) all rest are averaging at in 5's. You've given me hope that I too could drop those numbers, thank you :)

    I can't say what mine is. They didn't not bother to tell me. Usually there is a notification in the post.

    When I wrote my comment I thought it was funny. It doesn't look so good in print and might have offended you. I apologise if it did since that was not my intention.
