From Aberden, New Jersey, USA:

My blood sugar is manageable for someone with type 2 diabetes. My A1c was 6.3. I do have my candy from time to time. Is this bad even though my sugar levels are pretty much normal?


If your A1c is 6.3, then you are acheiving the goal of less than 6.5% and can certainly enjoy your candy treat from time to time.
