In the midst of all the discussion of A1C, I'd be thrilled if it dropped to 8 from my diagnosis level of 12.4 when it is checked again in May. Even though I don't believe the A1C is very reliable, it would feel like a huge accomplishment.
The DsharpDiabetes online app that I am using says my average BG is around 136 (!) and that it correlates to an A1C of about 6.5 to 7. However, that's only going back through February 23rd, so I'm sure if checked today that it would be MUCH higher than that.
My pancreas seems to intermittently kick in, but it doesn't look like a full fledged honeymoon period yet..
I am really happy with my progress but need to lay off the chocolate. I can't help it- Easter is my FAVORITE holiday.
But on another note, I appreciate all of the people at TuD for listening and offering assistance. It means a lot. Thank you.
