Default Can this be pre-diabetes?

Hello!

I've been recently diagnosed with polynurophaty by EMG study.
Apparently my blood work worked out normal, but I'm still digging and it looks like my A1C is 6.2 - in lab norms that the top of the norm, but from what I found that's being classified by Pre-diabetes.
My fasting glucose on the same lab work was 69.6 so I guess that's why anything to do with diabetes was discarded.
Should I re-do the test with drinking glucose and testing 2h after?
What can high A1C and low fasting glucose means?

I'm a bit overweight, but I don't eat trash. By any means I'll make significant dietary changes and try to loose as much weight as possible (not that easy when I can't run )

Any advise would be useful!

It might be an idea if you got retested for A1C every few months or so, just to see if it is increasing with time.

Regular fasting glucose and glucose tolerance tests are also worth considering as is measurements of your insulin levels.

I've bought a glucometer and I'll be testing myself for few days
Thanks!

Hi, I eat like I could be diabetic and I'm not. My A1C last test was 5.4. But regardless, I eliminate MOSTLY refined carbs and sugars. Last thing I want to deal with is diabetes.

Veggies, Protein and Clean Water...

Might want to do a thorough 2 hour Impaired Glucose tolerance test. Do a fasting baseline, then eat something high carb like a baked potato, pizza or spaghettiti and garlic bread. Then take a glucose reading every 30 minutes for up to 2 hours. If you spike over 140, you are prediabetic.

This is what I found out. I am now heating healthy. No more high carb meals for me. It has been said that every time your blood sugars go over 140, it causes nerve and organ damage. Even if for an hour or two.
