Guidelines vary depending on the strictness of your doctor. In general, an a1c 5.7 - 6.4% is considered “pre-diabetic”. But many feel that this is sort of like being a “little bit pregnant”. Basically, you have a dysfunction in your glucose metabolism that is not yet too severe.

Diet and exercise are the two most important things to moderate your glucose levels. There is no one-size-fits-all diet and you will have to check your blood sugars to determine what food are best for you.

Hello Ganesh,

Hb1Ac is average sugar level in your blood for the past 3 to 4 months. And yes you are pre diabetic but need not worry. Just slowly try to change your life style habits like morning walk , cut out the unwanted sugars like sweets, sugar in Tea or coffee. If you are having rice at evening meals, substitute with roti or something. If you STRICTLY follow these, then you may be out of this. Have a test after 3 months or so.
