Shanny - I had the same problem last time - and all my Doc would say that its great control as its under 6... I am really blown by this and I have worked really hard with diet and exercise! Unless my meter is dicky and I have changed meters for the third time... I am at a loss as to why my readings are so different to the actual A1C. Is there anywhere where I can find out about this?Glad it's lower than last time, but it doesn't seem commensurate with your regular readings, especially your fastings. Weird . . .
