Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hemoglobin (Hb) is a protein in red blood cells that functions to bind oxygen to be distributed throughout the body. HbA1c is glycated hemoglobin. Monitoring HbA1c levels in the blood is useful for monitoring average blood sugar levels over the past 2 to 3 months. This examination is useful for diabetics, including people who are at high risk of suffering from diabetes (for example because they have diabetes).
Normally, HbA1c levels in the blood range from 4 to 5.6%. HbA1c levels between 5.7 to 6.4% indicate that you are at higher risk of developing diabetes. Meanwhile, HbA1c levels that reach 6.5% or more can mean that you have diabetes.
In connection with your question, it needs to be clarified first, what is your exact HbA1c level? Have you experienced any complaints so far? And, are there any other tests that you have been through to identify the disease you are suffering from?
Not always high levels of HbA1c need to be overcome by administering drugs. It could also be that the HbA1c results increase due to other causes, for example due to diseases that affect hemoglobin, side effects of taking vitamin C or E supplements, high cholesterol levels, kidney disease, or also liver disease. Therefore, you need to first confirm the results of your examination to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine who examines you directly. The diagnosis of a disease needs to be made through a comprehensive examination, not limited to laboratory tests, but also interviews, physical examinations, and other supporting tests.
If it is true that you are at risk or already suffering from diabetes, then the doctor will also consider whether or not the administration of anti-diabetes drugs is needed. In the meantime, you should first do the following steps:
Diligent exercise 1 to 2 days
Don't over-consume foods with high simple carbohydrate content
Also reduce the consumption of foods that contain trans fats, saturated fats, and cholesterol
Increase consumption of vegetables, fruit, fish oil, and whole grains
Keep your weight so that it's not too fat
Be active, don't get used to living a sedentary lifestyle
Do not smoke let alone consume alcohol
Hope this helps ...
