Let's remember to keep the A1c numbers in perspective.  The 
easiest way is to convert them to mg/dl by multiplying by 18.  Thus 
an A1c of under 4.4 is Hypo (under 80) and a A1c of 7.0 is 126.  
Not an extreme high Bg, but one to work down on average.  A 5.6 
is right at a 100.  Each lab may have a slightly different scale for 
normal values though, so do be careful when comparing.
