Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a healthy 34-year-old female. I recently got my HbA1c levels tested, and it was 6.2 %. I read that my readings indicate prediabetes. Can you help me understand what prediabetes is and the measures I need to take to overcome it and not have complications later?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern. This falls in the category of prediabetes. You did a good job by checking HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) levels. No medicine is required at this level. I suggest you adopt the following measures. Do exercise. Have weight reduction, less than 23 BMI (body mass index). Decrease carbohydrates in the diet. Avoid junk and fast foods. Repeat HbA1c after four months. Hope this has answered your query. Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
