Is a A1C diabetes test result: 5.1 percent mean someone has Type 1 Diabetes? Please help!?

My A1C diabetes test results were: 5.1 percent. Is a A1C 5.1 percent level result mean someone has Type 1 Diabetes and their A1C 5.1 percent result is too Low, meaning Type 1 Diabetes?

    Not by itself considered diabetes.  Google this and you will find charts, graphs and some good info from Mayo and the American Diabetes Association and others

    It is not so straightforward. it depends on your age and genetics. The doctor needs further tests to distinguish Type 1 or 2 diabetes. Your fasting sugar level needs to be monitored for some time.

    You really need to see a doctor. There are only a few retired nurses in this forum board. only the doctor can diagnose you and give you a complete picture with cholesterol, lipid levels, blood sugar levels and blood pressure by the weeks. a1c test is incomplete by itself.

    take care.
