Changes to your diet can have an immediate affect on your daily blood sugars. But as for as your hemoglobin A1C levels, that takes about 3 months to see a difference. That is because the test measures blood sugar management over a 3 month period of time. If you keep your blood sugars down consistently your next test should decrease quite a bit.
