Brief Answer:
About diabetes and dislipidemia:

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your reports.
HbA1c level is high suggesting for Diabetes. If you are under treatment for diabetes than there is no need to change it as HbA1c is near the values we suggest (6.5%). If this is the firs time you get diagnosed with Diabetes, than you need to see a physician who will recommend a diet or physical activity, depending on your body weight.
The cholesterol and triglicerydes are high too, suggesting for dislipidemia.
It will be your physician decision (after a detailed clinical examination and history) rather to start treatment or not.
Hope the information will help.
Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta

Brief Answer:
About Hba1c and high lipids;

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

No, high lipid profile does not increase Hba1c.
On the contrary, high Hba1c can cause high triglycerides.

Alcohol can be a predisposing factor of Diabetes.
