  • is the lab where you are getting your sugar level tested fine . there could be error over there.

  • yes thyrocare is a reputed one,I had also rechecked values witah columbia asia hospital bangalore and found the results are same.

  • Her FBS and random varies between 140 and 200,then how hba1c is between 5 and 6?

  • It is unreliable!Is not it?

  • You can check hba1c, fasting & pp in another reliable lab.

  • I rechecked with columbia asia hospital in Bangalore and the results were same

  • Switch Lab.

    Many labs involve in what is known as SINK test and they should never be visited again.

    With fasting between 100 and 140, and RBS between 140-200, even 6 is impossible number.

  • results are rechecked with columbia asia hospital.Bangalore and are found to be same.

  • Diabetic complications arise when your blood sugar exceeds 185 mg/dL. Her hemoglobin should be above 12.1 g/dL.
