Brief Answer:
The results are related to insulin resistance, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

An A1C level of 6.2 percent is related to pre-diabetes.

The C peptide test is done to find out whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

The level of C peptide in your results is high.

So this results is related to insulin resistance.

The level of insulin is higher than normal.

So, your results are related to insulin resistance as you mentioned in the query.

I recommend taking medications such as Metformin.

It is a prescription medication, so you should consult your doctor before taking it.

I suggest a healthy diet low in calories and rich in fibers.

I also suggest to exercise and avoid consumption of alcohol or smoking.

I also recommend to maintain the cholesterol level under control through regular checkups.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
