Got my latest A1C to share with the company physician. Need to have <8.5% to keep active license. No problem - six months after dx and it's 6.0%.
So, six months from 16.0% to 6.0%. I think I'm comfortable there. Any lower and I risk too many lows. So far I haven't had any that snuck up on me. I could tell and deal with it. I think my alltime low was 52 and a 'normal' low is ~65.
