Default what was your latest hba1c test result

well i got my results today an despite an effort to get it under control have risen to 11.3, have a few other things going on medical wise that may not be helping,but am waiting for results next week as to just what that might be, my gp is going to get me back to see the diabectic dr, so am keen as to get things heading back in the right direction, 2 weeks ago i saw the diabetic nurse who was pretty happy with my efforts, alas nothing is quite as it seems, diabetes often licked, never beaten,
so what was your hba1c result?

My latest was 5.6. I was hoping for lower but had a bout of higher fasting and daily BG numbers the week or so before tested.

You have been LCHF only 2-3 weeks and that's just not enough time to show improved numbers on 3 month average. If your daily numbers are dropping, you should see a noticeable improvement next test.

From 8.4 percent to 6.1 percent since June 2013. Give it time, the LCHF will work its wonders and bring it down. Keep your chin up.

6.2 the other day -- though I would think from all the work I have done in the last 6 mos it should be lower ... LADA, or NO.

My last one was 5.3% but back in early August 2010 I started on 8.2%.

By mid October that year it had fallen to 6.2% then by early February it dropped to 5.1%.

So give it another run round the block before you get too disappointed.

Latest one in June, 4.4%.

dx in Feb of '12 with 9.5%, went seriously lc/hf and by June of '12 I took a home A1c and got a 5.8%. Two days later a lab A1c of 5.7%. In both Sept of '12 and Dec of '12 I got 5% by that time, had been in ketosis several months. Feb of this year on 1 year anniversary of dx was 5.1% (had recently had a series of steroid shots to overcome). And that takes me to the afore mentioned 4.4% in June. I'm due for a home test, but I am going to wait a month or so to let as much of the surgery/recovery numbers get back to normal.

I've been in ketosis well over a year and adhere strictly to my woe, no cheats/treats at all.

At DX over two years ago a mere 8.0. Went down to the sixes awhile during honeymoon then back up to 11.00 a year later. After about six months of treatment 10.6.

Going again in October - hoping for better. Like you, Flipper, I've got other medical stuff not helping.
