#Diabetes: Do you know your "ABC’s"?

Here is a quick and simple exercise from our American Diabetes Association:

“A” involves the HgA1C, or A1C blood test, which provides a three-month average percentage of glucose levels in the blood. The ADA recommends blood glucose below 7 percent, with the normal range generally considered to be 4 to 6 percent.
“B” represents normal blood pressure of 130/80 or lower.
“C” involves keeping LDL cholesterol below 100 and HDL 40 or higher.
