I have had my A1c tested twice and each test

I have had my A1c tested twice and each test year apart results were 4.1 and 4.0, the doctor says I have insulin resistance but does not say anything else. I am 100 pounds over weight and has a hard time losing weight and if I go for more than 5 hours of not eating I start to have a metal taste in my mouth, start becoming shaky and light headed. Do I need to see a specialist.

What are the normal ranges for A1C3 tests? Back in January I had it at like 11.7% and then in May it was at 7.4% or something. My daily blood sugar levels have been going up since then so I think I may be in trouble on Wednesday when I have my next test.

Hi I my ankle was crushed 1 year ago in a construction accident. I have had 3 surgeries and as of today the wound will not heal completely. I had an A1C test done two weeks ago and my numbers came back 11.7. They are now saying I need to see my primary care doctor for treatment for diabetes. Could this be a result from the trauma my ankle went through?

I m due for an ESI on March 3. My last one was on Dec. 1st and I had extreme reactions to it, like emotional rage, really high blood pressure (my normal is 116 and it went up to 177), the cataract in my right eye went nuts. As expected, I had a headache for 4 days and could barely sleep. My pain mgmt doc has decided to use Decadron on Mar 3. Should I expect less reactions? How might it affect my A1C which I ve been keeping at bay for 12 years but because of my age 71 it s been ticking up little by little although all my other blood results are wonderful.
