I Came down with Type One D in 2005 and my A1'c was good for the first two years but I creep ed into the 7's, highest being 7.7 but nothing over that for like 3 to 4 years until i finally told me i cant stay like this and made an appointment with an endo to improve my numbers. The thing I'm mad at is my primary doctor didn't push to see an endo earlier to keep my numbers below 7. It makes my so angry I cant get over it.
When i started seeing the endo i finally was able to figure out with there help what i was doing wrong and fixed it. my first two al'c with the endo were 6.6 and 6.0. I asked my endo how much damage Ive done to my body over the last 4 years being in the 7's and he said some but prob only a little.
I wish i could have those 4 years BACK! and i wish i saw the light earlier
