Not doing the meter readings because of the vast different readings. The range is too great. Strictly going by A1C from my Dr. Apparently no one wants to try three readings on their glucose meter.
The person posted above had 111 this morning. Try another fasting and see if your number is different. I could accept a few numbers either way but not.... 191 152 Then 171. To me it makes no sense to continue. The A1C average is the one that counts. Who cares if a fasting reading is up one day and down the next...the average is the key number.......at least for newly diagnosed type 2.
Newly diagnosed meaning the last three years. Basically my meter is a high low meter. The numbers mean not that much kinda. A yeah you have D or yeah you don’t have D

So don't test every day. Some of us don't. We're eating the same foods and doing pretty much the same activities every day; a person should expect the same result. But we still spot-check, to make sure we're on the right path and see if things we can't feel are changing our diabetes. After all, we're still diabetic. That doesn't go away just because we get a low reading or two.

Some people post daily because they're learning things about themselves. One person here is posting as he recovers from major surgery; daily testing is an indication of how his body is healing. Others post because it holds them accountable -- it might slow a person down from snarfing down that bag of mini donuts if they know they're expected to post a FBG number the next morning. We do what works for us in managing our diabetes.

Of course, if you don't want to know, then keep taking your meds, wait for your A1cs and your doctor to tell you if you need more, and don't stick yourself -- because the information has no value for you.

But don't diss a tool that many here find useful. It's not like you've started an earnest discussion on the value of testing. We test because we act on the information we get. If that does not apply to you, then don't test -- and, I would suggest, don't waste your time posting that you don't test in a thread dedicated to daily tests.

Is there a thread on this site where people only report their A1C? Someone who thinks like me?

I don't think anyone is looking only at a 3 month average. As important as it is, its an average and doesn't tell enough to help anyone

@Ratter51 - it's time this thread returned to it's original purpose - a place for folks to record their fasting BG. Please start a new thread if you wish to debate about meter vs A1C.

I don't test fasting very often, but have done so a few times this last week. They were all around 111-114.
