Clinical Question:
What are reasonable Hemoglobin A1c (A1c) targets for our patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus?

Bottom-line:
While many patients can safely attain an A1c at or just below 7 percent^ older patients^ those with long-standing diabetes^ multiple co-morbidities^ and/or high risk of hypoglycemia^ reasonable targets are perhaps 7-8 percent or even higher.
