Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
No this is very unlikely.
The test is an error --the lab should be questioned.
The test should be repeated with different lab.
A1c 13.5 means blood sugar above 350 --not likely without any symptoms.
