    Hi all:
    I have a question, 6 months ago my pcp tested my A1C and it came out 5.7 I was told that is pre-diabetic. the last 2 months I have gained 15 lbs, get hungry especially after eating, have EXTREME fatigue and have an itching in the groin area. My Endo (I am hypothyroid) took another A1C but I have not received the results yet. Could my A1C have gone up?

    Hello and welcome.

    Sure, it is possible your A1C has gone up. The test results will tell all in that area.

    Could be something else going on. If your A1C is good, then perhaps it would be best to follow up with your primary doctor or your gynecologist.
