I went to the doctor last Friday just for a general check-up. I knew I needed to get a new prescription for my blood pressure medicine. After talking with my doctor, we decided to change my medication - for reasons not at all related to my blood pressure, diet, or exercise. As he looked over my records, he noticed it had been over a year since I'd had lab work done.
So, today my lab results came in... the big one.... and I'm copying it as it reads on the letter.
"Your Hemoglobin A1C (HgbA1C)is a test which measures your average blood sugar over the preceding 3 months. It is less than 6 which is excellent! There is no evidence you have diabetes."
Everything else was within normal limits, too! Yay!!!
