I had an A1C at the Dr's office two week ago this Wed. I still have no results!!! I have called the office so many times and nothing. The nurse will not tell what lab they use. I am not officially diagnosed with Diabetes and this is frustrating me. I drank 2 quarts of water on Friday I was so thirsty. I have been gaining unusual amounts of weight, extreme fatigue. I need answers and cannot get them, any suggestions on what to do? Thank you!View Thread
Thank you all, I don't know what lab they use. They drew the lab in their office. A week seems to long to me also. I am on pins and needles waiting for these results. Usually they get my Thyroid panels back within a week. Does the A1C take longer?View Thread
Hi all: I have a question, 6 months ago my pcp tested my A1C and it came out 5.7 I was told that is pre-diabetic. the last 2 months I have gained 15 lbs, get hungry especially after eating, have EXTREME fatigue and have an itching in the groin area. My Endo (I am hypothyroid) took another A1C but I have not received the results yet. Could my A1C have gone up?View Thread
