Has anyone ever received an A1C value they just don’t trust?
My A1C has been hovering between 5.4-5.9 for about three years now. My most recent value from last year was 5.5. I just had it tested yesterday and expected it to have increased slightly because, well, you know, I can see what’s happening on my Dexcom and I just haven’t had great control lately. But shockingly the test yesterday came back at 4.8. While I understand that would be an amazing value if true, I just don’t believe it’s accurate, especially because my Dexcom says my average value over the past 90 days is 124.
All my tests have been at a lab, I’ve never used an at-home test kit. It’s a different lab this time than last time, but still, one would expect consistency. Has anyone ever experienced issues with inaccurate lab values?
