Hgb A1C is a measure of glycosylated hemoglobin. This level increases when a person's blood sugar runs higher than normal for weeks. This change happens over time, so controlling your blood sugar one day, then allowing it to be out of control the next day won't work. The best way to lower Hgb A1C (assuming it is high) is to have good control of your blood sugar all the time. The best eating strategy is to have smaller meals with some healthy snacks in between so that you end up eating about 6 small meals a day instead of 3 larger meals a day. This limits the amount of calories at any one time and keeps your insulin from spiking high after a meal. If you are diabetic, taking your oral hypoglycemics and/or insulin as prescribed will be part of keeping your blood sugar under good control. As always, remember that anything with sugar will raise your blood sugar, so stick to foods without sugar or very tiny quantities.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
