    Well it implies T2 diabetes
    Anything over 48 mmol/m is considered "full on" T2 here in the UK.
    From 42-47 is Prediabetes and 41 or lower is "normal".

    Thanks for good information. So as I see it, my HbA1c, lies in the green/yellow segment of the chart so it's not as bad as I feared.
    Will talk to nurse Monday.
