Could Be Better, Could Be Worse

Got my lab results back from my most recent medical exam. The important figure for diabetes is the A1c, which ideally should be between 4.8 and 5.6%. My previous number had been at 6.0, the second-highest ever. (I was a fair bit higher when first diagnosed, but brought it back down into the non-diabetic range through diet and exercise.) The current figure is 5.9, which while still out of norm is an improvement, and my doctor isn't displeased. He repeats, and I agree with him, that I need to lose the weight, and that someday my pancreas will decide it's had enough and things might go as pear-shaped as I am right now.
