I went to the Endo today, overall appointment…GREAT! A1C news not bad, could be worse. My last A1C was 6.3. Today’s results “6.8”!!! I knew it would be higher than last time but not that much higher! My heart was broken…I quickly got over it, not quickly after, maybe about 15 minutes later. I try not to get down about it. .
Diabetic Motto in the Endo’s office
“First we stabilize, than we lower”
Wes did try spinning a positive by saying “I was very stable and consistent.” No hypo’s…not too many hyper’s; he made a good point. He said “Stability is better than a great A1C. I would rather see your A1C at 6.8 than 5.6 w/ a lot of hypo’s.” He said anything under 7.0 in his office for a Type 1 is great. Well, if you look at it that way I am still doing good. Plus, the A1C is only 1 piece of the puzzle.
I am getting the stability part down. I need to work on accurately carb counting my dinner meals. I’m going to have to break down and by a scale.
I did let Wes know I fell off the bandwagon for the month of December. I am back from the non-diabetic world but I sure enjoyed my trip.
Overall everything looks great…No weight gain (my stomach is singing “Your jiggling baby” ), Thyroid great, blood pressure great. Vitamin D level is 67, slowly creeping back up.
I am chasing 6.0…healthy 6.0 that is!! Cross your fingers and wish me luck, in 3 months I will be back at 6.3.
