Wesley (Endo NP) walked in the office…..
Wesley: “Hello! what do you think your A1C is?”
Me: “I think it’s 7.8.”
Wesley: “Nope, it’s 6.3.”
Me: “Really??? Wow! I am surprised. I didn’t think I did good. I have had a lot of high fasting numbers”
Wesley: “You are doing great.”
Me: “I want to be at 5.9 next time.”
I am excited and happy that my A1C dropped from 7.1 to 6.3 within 3 months. I have always been under 6.1 after my dx. In January my anti bodies started attacking my pancreas and I was placed on insulin. I guess this Pod has helped maintain good control.
I am doing well overall. I didn’t have a lot of highs or lows. I told him I decided to go back to being semi-strict again, I let up just a little too much, once you start letting go it’s a matter of time before you lose control; I don’t want to lose control at all.
I am going back to dedicating 1 day a month to have something I really want and decreasing my carbs, no more than 30-35 per meal; of course I am going to have a snack in between. I am determined to see 5.6 again!! I know it’s not going to be easy, but if the good Lord’s willing I will see it again.
Happy to be under 6.5 (A1c), trying to achieve 5.6 again!! Send up your prayers cause I am going to need it
