    High sugar, low cholesterol?

    Just got back lab results and my Hemoglobin A1c is at 6%, which is pre-diabetic. I do not have a family history of diabetes and my lab results have always been normal until now. However all my other results are still normal: BP: 122/76, Total cholesterol: 191, HDL: 47, Ratio: 4.06. I have a follow up later with my doctor but how can I be pre-diabetic with normal numbers everywhere else? Other stats: African-American Male, 32 years old, 5'-11", 182 lbs.
