What you do with your previous results is up to you, but keep in mind A1C is glacial, it is a 3 month window into your blood glucose levels. Expecting the result to be even slightly different in anything under 4 -6 months is completely unrealistic. So unless you had 12 months of so to wait for your A1C to come down with strict carb restriction, trying for a different result in the short term is pointless.

You’re talking about your health. You must be truthful because you don’t want to risk any complications. I’d give my new doctor the results but ask if they’d do another lot to monitor changes. Your doctor can access all your blood work results anyway if they want so you’re not hiding anything. When I get my printout it shows the results for a number of previous tests.

The surgery was one of the best decisions I ever made. Best of luck with your journey.

Thank you all!! I know i should definitely just give her the results. I think I’m so anxious about being cleared and getting a surgery date.

it looks like the content of your original post is gone, but did you say that your glucose level is high? If so, that shouldn't stop your surgery - there are a number of bariatric patients who have Type 2 diabetes (and it often goes into remission after surgery)
