    James, the research you seek is from the CDC and the ADA. If you ignore a rise in blood glucose above 5.7%, you will have oxidative damage to your body. Every Endocrinologist I've every trained with says 5.7% is the REAL start of DIABETES because they know damage is being done at that level. Most people can spend over a decade in "prediabetes" and all that time, damage is being done. You say "I feel that if it's 6.4 AIc is the start to become pre-diabetic" where is YOUR research? It certainly contradicts what the ADA says! Please do not spread misinformation. Diabetes is a huge epidemic health problem around the globe and we need to inform people with a usable metric. Prevention is key! Dietary and other lifestyle changes are "real information" based on research!!

    I disagree with this doctor. In America our food is not the same as it was in the 1900s. The average American in the 1900s will consume 5 to 20 pounds of sugar a year. Today its up to 120 pounds of sugar a year. And all do respect to this doctor, she may feel 5.7 is not a good A-1 C. But where is her research? Where is her evidence based research. The reason why we consider A1c less than seven as good is because of research. Is there a such a number For prediabetes? Yes I feel that if it’s 6.4 A1c is the start to become pre-diabetic. 5.7 is too low and not everyone can eat a paleo diet. If your a1c is high lose weight and eat healthier

    YAY!!! GR-Z. You're the reason I keep doing what I do. It is quite discouraging when people with far higher A1c don't take it seriously (including the doctors). Good luck to you and I'm so glad I could help keep you healthy!

    I haven't seen a doctor in so long… Finally did a month ago. Found out I have A1C of 5.7 so in a way I went in the perfect time. I was eating a lot of junk for a long time. I finally changed my diet it's been tough but I cut out carbs and sugar completely and have been eating lots of veggies and lean meats. I'm hoping my results will be normal by the time I get my next blood test. The problem is I'm not overweight. Im underweight.

    Thanks for the heads up, but you did exactly what you said our doctors do…left us not knowing what to do unless we subscribe…i guess money means caring…i have 5.7 …but as this world is , no one is out there to really care about others unless you have the money to do it..What happened to caring about life.

    These numbers are not changing. The beginning of diabetes (PreDM, Early DM, whatever you want to call it, it's the start of blood glucose problems) is 5.7%. Diabetes.org is the official ADA website. You can also go to my website, http://www.yourpaleopractitioner.com

    5.7 or 5.8??? Why do the numbers keep changing?

    Ace of Cups:
    I'm sorry you feel that way, but you are probably not in the healthcare industry. I see more than 50% of patients in Primary Care that fit the bill of pre diabetes, with a majority of them becoming Type 2 Diabetes within 5 years (and all the glorious complications that come along with that). The worst part is most health care professionals feel the same way you do which explains why over 90% of those with pre diabetes are not told about their high risk. Type 2 Diabetes (a disease driven by poor lifestyle choices) is marching across the globe.
