    Yep, the nurse said it was "one thing away from being diabetic," meaning the norm range starts at 5.7. See, I thought it was different (higher) for kids, but not according to the ped. That's why I want to go to a specialist.

    I know that my A1C was 5.8 last time and my endo said that was fine.

    I'm going to keep a record of what he's eating and do random finger pricks until our appt in July. Even though his fasting glucose was normal, the 2 hour post meals were high. I'll keep all that info and bring it with us to the endo.

      There are conversion charts that allow you to see what the average glucose level is based on HbA1c results. Here are a few:
