In the U.S., diabetes — or diabetes mellitus (DM) — is full-blown epidemic, and that’s not hyperbole.

    While I was talking with my nurse she mentions that an a1c lower then 5.0 might not be healthy. I really didn't think about it until now. Mine is 5.8. Down from DX 8.7. What are the safe numbers?

    Dr Bernstein recommends an A1C below 4.8.
    If you haven't already, get and read Dr Bernstein's Book "Diabetes Solutions" - It is the ultimate book for any newly diagnosed Diabetic.
