I'm in control.
I went to my endocrinologist today and my A1c was 5.8%. This is the best control I've had over my diabetes ever. To the laymen out there the A1c is a blood test used to determine the average blood sugar levels over a three month (or so) period. The normal range (according to Wikipedia) is 4% to 5.9%. I'm normal? Who knew!
My doctor considers her diabetic patients to be "controlled" when their A1c is 7% or less. Before getting my new pump (with the continuous glucose monitor) my A1c was 7.2%. A few weeks after getting it and using it it was 6.8%. I've had it now for about 3 months and my A1c has dropped down a full percentage point. I gave myself a little pat on the back. Not too shabby.
