Smile Whoa!!! HbA1c 5.8

At the end of August I went for my Diabetic Care Plan visist to my Doctor and was told by the nurse that my HA1C was 6.3 which disapointed me a little because going on my meter results I was hoping to be under 6. Looking for some other paperwork this morning I came accross my results from that visit and there was my HA1C at 5.8!!! I am so happy!

Kinda makes you wonder what other mistakes that nurse has made. Now that's a scary thought!

Congrats on the A1c test result, keep up the good work.

Had one done today and it is important as my last was 5.2 and I've added some carbs to my diet, slowly, but still very low...under 30 all the time and many days below 20, but still very slowly loosing weight which I'd rather not. At 5'4" I'm happy with 130 or a bit more.

A girls got to keep her curves, no matter how old she is. I was only 95 my wedding day at 21, but I'm a bit older now...and need to keep it higher.
