With that A1C, pretty good chance he's RIGHT. Plus, he's probably eating with you, so indeed no need to test I would think. Mine is also mid to low 5's. If it stays there for a while, what reason would I have to test a lot? The only case would be if I was having highs and lows giving a deceptive A1C, but I've never, ever had a low and don't expect to. So, I'm fine and testing is a waste of time and resources same as your husband.Linda, my husband is a type 2 the last 15 years and doesn't test. He is a smart, very well educated person but has convinced himself he does not need to test. I just finally gave up trying. The ironic part of this is that his HbA1c is always in the mid 5's when they take it once a year.
