I just got bloodwork in...

It's the first a1c test I've had since I was diagnosed back in October. My a1c was 13.7 then. I've eaten very low carb and have eliminated as much sugar as I can from my diet. I'm also on humalog and levamir.

Anyhow, the new a1c reading was 6.4! I was very excited to get that result. Most days, my glc level is between 100 and 140. It's rare that I spike over about 170 because I match up my meals and my humalog shot; basically, I budget carbs to match the number of units I use,

As a really nice extra, my total cholesterol was 155, with triglycerides at 97 and the LDL/HDL ratio at 2.8. Altogether a very good checkup. Now I'll see if I can get the a1c down into the 5's.

3. Congratulations, I was in the ER about 3 weeks ago

after my wife tested me and the meter read HI. ER reading also read HI. Long story short turned out my glc was well into the 600's. Glad to hear your doing well. I feel so much better now that my sugars are right and eating better.
