If your A1C was 10.6. Is it possible to get it below 9 in 3 months?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to our community with your question.

If you are asking about yourself, consider speaking with your physician if this is a realistic and achievable goal.

The A1C test is a blood test that provides information about a person’s average levels of blood glucose, also called blood sugar, over the past 3 months. The A1C test is sometimes called the hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, or glycohemoglobin test. The A1C test is the primary test used for diabetes management and diabetes research.

Large changes in a person’s blood glucose levels over the past month will show up in their A1C test result, but the A1C does not show sudden, temporary increases or decreases in blood glucose levels. Even though the A1C represents a long-term average, blood glucose levels within the past 30 days have a greater effect on the A1C reading than those in previous months.
