Don't be so hard on yourself! 6.8 is awesome! Congratulations!
That's a great a1c! Congrats!
Nikki come on now - you KNOW that 6.8 is fine! Give yourself a break. I ought to call my CDE to find out what my HbA1c was at the test I did last week..... but I am SURE it has gone up. How much up - that is the question! I think I will put off calling.
Reference range??????6.8 is pretty good with every lab I know of.
Thanks guys! I just try to shoot a little lower, it went up from last time, that is why I am mad at myself. Thanks for the encouragement!
Nikki, that is an AWESOME A1C!Such a small change can be written off to so many little things. Don't fret about it.
Nikki....The A1C's is not a very good or accurate reflection of bg values day to day in T1DM.If your blood sugars were 40mg/dl(Hypoglycemia) for 6 weeks and the other 6 weeks they were 200(Hyperglycemia),your A1C Readings would reflect a normal blood glucose of 120mg/dl.It is all mathematical and averaging w/HgbA1C. It does not tell you the type of scenario I have given,> There are many people w/T1DM who have wide fluctuations in their bg because of Hyper/HypoGlycemia, Rebound Effect. Exercise and Infection influences.Thus for a real Assessment, I would rely on the day to day readings.I am sure that a way exists to create Software that would reflect a HgbA1C by the INput of Glucose values for Three months.
Even though it's not quite what you expected, 6.8 is a fantastic A1c! Pat yourself on the back, girl!!!
I'm the mother of 2 sons with type 1 diabetes. My older son, age 22, doesn't even know his A1C (probably 10).My youngest son, age 17, his last A1C was 11.5. I WISH they had such a great A1C. You are doing everything right. And yes, diabetes sucks!Deanna
Dear Momma, with the young adults who have the high aic's..God Bless you and I pray the boys sugars come down. This must be so hard on a momma to worry about.Momma J
