Welcome to the team. I agree, you must take this seriously now so you can get it under control. What time are you taking your readings? If those a fasting numbers, they are too high and you need to try to lower them.

We are not medical practicioners, but we all have our own experiences to draw upon and are willing to answer any questions you may have. Hope to get to know you better.....

my endo says when you get that diagmosis you need to act like you are diabetic he says there is no such thing..you either are or you aren't..i think they try to make it a little more presentable but now is the time to start when you can control it with diet and exercise..don't let it get out of hand..this is a golden opportunity..don't pass it by for sure

I always suggest you check with your Dr, but here are the definitions from the NIH db, based on the results from your Ha1C:

Normal: Less than 5.7%

Pre-diabetes: 5.7% - 6.4%

Diabetes: 6.5% or higher

Been diagnosed with the above since June 2012. How do you know when you
have progressed to Type II ? Although I have'nt checked my blood sugars levels for a while,
they are averaging around 137-140. Also, as a symptom, does smelling fish all the time mean anything?
