Diagnosed with Type 2. Taking medication and exercising, blood results normal. Suggestion?

i was diag two months ago with type two and at the time my numbers were 11.0 and high 300s since then i have gotten my daily numbers down to 102-107. this was done with dieting medication and some working out. my question is does these numbers mean my 1ac has come down and is there a chart i can go by or is it all through blood testing with my doctor.

Welcome to HCM,
Diabetes Type II is lifestyle disease and needs to be taken care life long,It is good that your blood sugar level is near normal level.
Please continue to take diabetic diet and exercises .
If you are over weight maintain it to near ideal level that is BMI 19 to 25 and if you take alcohol and smoke both should be stopped.
Keep on checking your blood sugar FBS and PPBS if readings are low then dose of anti diabetic medicines may be reduced.
It takes at least 3 month to have any significant change in HbA1c level.It should be cheked once in 3 months.
You have to check with your Physician and follow his guide lines.
Take care
Good Luck

Thanks for writing your query to us.
Since you are following diet, doing exercise & medications regularly, your sugar levels are bound to come back within normal range. Keep it up. Your Hb1Ac levels will also come back to normal if you continue your present lifestyle. HbA1c reports need to be done every three months. You can buy a Glucometer so that you can measure your blood sugar levels. Hb1Ac blood testing needs to be done at your doctors clinic.

Be consistent in your efforts to keep sugar levels normal. Take care.
