For any of the medically inclined out there...is it possible to get a false A1C result? Last June I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. My score was 11.8 and my doctor told me that was coma-like numbers. The next morning I went on an immediate diet and started exercising. My next A1C 3 months later I had lost 25 pounds and my new score was under 6. My doctor told me he had only one other patient in 25 years that he could remember who's score how dropped that much. I was very happy to say the least.
However, this is what I am leading up to and I certainly am not complaining. I am just curious. Since around last Thanksgiving and ever since I fell off the food wagon. I have given up some foods and still walk a lot but the bottom line is I am a candy bar fiend. I just have no willpower. I have regained a lot of what I lost. The main issue is that even after all this even on nights where I know I have eaten a bunch of bad stuff my blood sugar tests are always fine?!?!?!My sugar is almost always between 110 to 130. THe highest it has ever registered was 176. Can there be false diabetic readings???
