You didn't state what your units of measurement are as to whether it is an A1c value or a mmol/l value. If the 6.3 is your A1c measurement, it is equivalent to 147 mg/dL and is still considered to be "in control" by A.D.A. protocols. There are many of us who think that value is still too high as damage to cells begins at 110 mg/dL and accelerates significantly at 140 mg/dL and higher. On the other hand, if your 6.3 value is mmol/l, that's equivalent to an A1c value of about 5.35 or is considered to be within safe ("normal" but elevated) ranges. A lifestyle modification would significantly improve your results and other members can chime in with specific recommendations.

It's important to talk with your doctor about these numbers. Most hospitals offer education programs for people with pre-diabetes and diabetes, and they can be an excellent way to learn more. ~Lynn @Glucerna
