What's described in the study is an initial visit to the clinic, then a later follow up. So are we working from just two measurements of HBA1C? What percentage of people with a right on the high end of normal HBA1C at a single visit just went through a month where there were more office birthday parties than usual, or something? An occasional 5.8 in a non-diabetic with no real risk of diabetes isn't that unusual. Two screenings five years apart weren't that predictive--getting screened at every doctor visit doesn't need to be predictive, it simply measures what's going on.
