Sharyn, the first thing to do is to get a glucose meter. You can find one on Amazon (this is where I got mine, which is a Contour One Easy, and it came as a complete kit with lancets, strips, etc.) or at your local Walmart but you would need to buy the accessories separately.
This will give you a good idea as to where you are. Measure before meals and 2 hours after meals.
The A1C test is a blood test that measures your blood sugar over the past 2-3 months.
As to the number of carbs/fat/protein, ask your doctor to refer you to a nutritionist, who would be able to give you meal plans in function of the other meds your take.

My fasting glucose numbers have steadily increased from 94 two years ago, now to 111 as of March 2019....I have another blood test coming up....I know the number is 120-125 for full diabetic, which I want to avoid.....I am 72 years old,need to lose prob 50 pounds realistic, but would be happy with 25 for now....I do not have anyway to check blood sugar at home, no meter, and do not know if A1C is a special blood test?? Am I considered pre=diabetic? my doctor seems more concerned with blood pressure and cholesterol meds...which I am on both....I am not even sure how many carbs,protein I should be eating.....in other words I need a lot of help!!...My name is Sharyn.
