Hemoglobin A1c is a reading for what percentage of your red blood cells are glycated (covered in sugar). This is a great indicator for a person's 3-month average for blood sugars.

An A1c <5.7 is within ideal limits

A1c 5.7-6.4 Indicates Prediabetes

A1c >6.4 indicates Diabetes

A few strategies for blood sugar management are weight loss (if indicated), regular exercise, and eating balanced meal with a moderate amount of carbohydrates.
