Hi,

Thanks for this question. What is this value of the test for (10.09), is it fasting blood glucose, random blood glucose or HbA1C?

Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 11 months ago.

Since you seem to be offline, ill leave a response here which we can discuss later on

If this value of 10.09 is for,

fasting blood glucose - it is very high and NOT a good result, this means that your blood glucose is not well controlled at all, it should be under 5.5 at the very least.

Random blood glucose - it is just above the recommended range for random blood glucose readings which means that your glucose is slightly higher than it should be

HbA1C - this again is a very high reading for HbA1c, this high a reading means that your blood glucose has been uncontrolled over the past three months, your HbA1c level should been under 6.0.

Do you have any more questions?
