My latest A1C had me in the mid 7's.
Here's the thing though. I swear I'd been absolutely textbook perfect for nearly 2 months and the majority of the time was under 100, but had just had a 2 days stretch of lousy tests. Really erratic hard to account for blips that later I tracked down to be because of a leaking tube on my pump (where it meets the reservoir adapter). It was a tiny crack and was intermittent depending on the angle the pump was resting at.
My endo is a little difficult to converse with on specifics and ends up getting frustrated that you don't already know things, but I was a little confused and wanted to know why it would be this high because I'd been really good. (My print outs supported this too, but the inaccuracy of the CGM was blamed)...so I couldn't get a very specific estimate from him over how long it takes to boost the A1C result.
Can anyone help me out with this question?
If I theoretically had a BG of 100 for a month straight and had a single half day where my bg shot up to 300, would the A1C immediately read an average of 200ish immediately, or are things a little more subtle than this?
It frustrated the hell out of me.
