Q. Serena asks: I wonder what a normal A1C level is?
A. Most doctors and labs will only say that it’s 6.0 or below. But it’s probably considerably less than than. One study by the NGSP regularly tests people who don’t have diabetes and aren’t obese. The levels for 95 percent of these people range from 4.7 to 5.7. A recent study, this one of young healthy Japanese women of normal weight, showed their average A1C level to be 5.2.
