Brief Answer:
Its not to be worried

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

HBA1C of 5.7 is considered within normal limits and nothing to be worried. You may occasionally keep checking your fasting blood sugar levels from laboratory or with glucometer at home. This should help keep a record of blood sugar levels on long term basis. Meanwhile avoid foods that are sugary like soft drink, juices, sweets, icecreams, etc.
