In the link is what I typed about my prediabetic A1C. My fasting glucose and one hour post-meal readings are not bad - but my sugar feeding frenzies pushed my blood sugar WAY up high, and that's how the A1C became elevated.
You can buy a home A1C test kit for about $20, for 2 tests, or ask your Dr. to order a lab test. You don't need a glucose meter for this test - everything is in the kit.
I bought a glucose meter and started testing myself to learn just how different foods affect me. There are videos on youtube showing how to do the testing.
