Today I posted my first sub 6 A1C at 5.9%
I was pretty confident I’d get there. In fact during the last two weeks my BGs have been super awesome. I’m almost expecting mid 5’s next time. I’ll post about that later. Still, it’s been my main goal for the past two years. I felt so high when I got the news I nearly screamed out loud at work! Woot!
My cholesterol came back great too. HDL: 1.55, LDL: 1.76, Total: 3.51, Trigs: 0.44 compared with six months ago of HDL: 2.00, LDL: 2.02, Total: 4.33, Trigs: 0.69. I honestly know little about what these mean, but my new PCP was elated.
So now what? I’ve met my goal. My control is PDG. Is it time to slack off some and revel in my glory? I can’t afford that, not with my eyes. I think the goal now might be to help some others get on track. I’m currently leading a fledgling support group at a local church. Almost all of them have no idea what their numbers are. If I can post some day that all members of my group had 5.9’s, I think that would be a real cause for celebration.
