Very good anything below 6 is great

This is a normal A1C. You are not a diabetic. Unless there is reason to suspect that you are at risk for diabetes I wonder why this test was done. There is nothing that you should do at this time. There is no reason for you to worry. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR

It is absolutely perfect. No indication of a blood sugar disorder.

5.7% is slightly elevated, but not incredibly. An average, non diabetic A1C is in the range of 4.6 and 5.1 -- with 5.1 being about 100mg/dl -- Your blood sugar is still below the 'diabetic' threshold at 5.7% and is very likely 'normal'. However if you are at risk for diabetes you still need to live a lifestyle to accomodate. IE: Overweight, poor diet, smoking, family history, and other risk factors. Don't worry -- keep getting checked if you are at risk and modify your lifestyle to be as healthy as possible -- You can stave off diabetes if you are diligent with lifestyle much of the time with a potential type II Dx.
