Wait. It wasn't my intention to imply that your HbA1c and thus estimated mean glucose is poor. I was opining that it's slightly elevated above what I would regard as 'normal'. The context was that, with this in mind, I would expect to see a slightly raised fasting insulin trying to maintain a lower fasting glucose, and that if this were not the case, it would indicate perhaps an insulin deficiency. I felt this was relevant to the discussion regarding beta cell function. I'm not in the business of judging other people's efforts. Sorry if I gave the wrong impression.
