Your 6.1 is excellent, and your morning BG is also very good. You have done well. What kind of treatment did you use to get those good numbers?

ok but 129 - 106 = 23, 23 x 4 = 92, and 92 + 106 = 198 mg/dl probable spikes, so have you been checking your blood sugar 1 hr after meals to check for high spikes?

but yes, an A1c of 6.1 is good to have

just checking, your numbers look great.

it is just a check i run on my and internet diabetes numbers.

it is the A1c converted to mg/dl minus the reported FBS times 4 because your highs should only exist 1/4 of the time, and that number added to your FBS may indicate the average maximum blood sugar. maybe at least in your case the factor should be 3 instead of 4 but that would still show about 166 off hand i think.

you seem to still have a lot of your pancreas left.

also if your pancreas is storing insulin and dumps it as a phase one response then your peaks will be flattened and the formula will be way off but many T2's run on an exhausted pancreas and their peaks will be higher.

i purposely inject more insulin than necessary so that my pancreas will store it. that gives me a flatter base line and reduces my peaks if i consume less than 20 carbs per meal. that way i got an A1c of 5.9 even though my FBS was around 120 mg/dl.
