How can I lower my A1c?

If you are diabetic, taking medicine as prescribed, exercise and following nutritious diet are the keys. Losing weight also helps, if needed. If you are pre-diabetic and not on medication, a consistent exercise regiment with proper diet to aid weight loss is helpful. Working with a registered dietitian to plan diet intake can be beneficial.
