Keep in mind some tests are required as soon as physically possible e.g. if someone is bleeding out or having a heart attack, and the longest one that they really need in emergency situations (not including medication monitoring) takes less than an hour.
    Oh ya I work for a specimen processing lab so I know about the process. I'm just surprised mine is low all things considered, but I worry about it because it was high before and my family has a history of high blood pressure, among other physical and mental problems. I haven't had a check up in a long time, which is why I was wondering about it.

It's a 3 month estimate of your glucose control, the higher it is the more damage you'll be doing to yourself [especially your kidneys (What's your Urine microalbumin / creatinine ratio?)].
    7.1 for a diabetic is actually very good. Not perfect (which would be around 6.5) but still good enough to live on without too much trouble.

    Er, no it's not. According to the NIH:

    If your level is above 7% and you have diabetes, it often means that your blood sugar is not well controlled. Your target A1c should be determined by you and your health care provider.
    I don't know how "often... not well controlled" is "actually very good." It might be for you, if that's what yr health care provider determiner with you. But all diabetes cases are different, and a high A1c is generally not good.

    I don't think having to have thyroid meds is that bad either. It's quite common and manageable.

    Yeah. It is perfectly fine for my mom, at least. No quality of life impact at all.

    Last I checked everything was good or great. BP 98/55, HR 37-43, LDL is as low as your grandpas balls, everything else was good.

    Only thing ****ed up is some sports injuries.
