My daughter Julia (she’ll be 5 this month) was diagnosed with Type 1 on May 3, 2007. Her latest hemoglobin A1C was 6.4% (in July). Our endocrinologist said this number was good, but it could illustrate that she’s having too many lows.
He’s also suggested that we try and keep her glucose levels between 100 and 200. He said the number for kids Julia’s age should be higher because of her rapidly growing body.
- I feel like our target is really wide! Anyone else out there have a big range like that?
2)What are your personal glucose targets for your kid? Are they different any from your physicians?
- For kids that have had it for a while… did your blood sugar targets change at some point as you get older?
Thanks for the input,
Mom of Julia type 1, age almost 5
