It's been exactly 3 months (to the day) since I was told I was "probably diabetic" when my fasting BG result was 14.8 ... That day I was sent to get my A1c, which I found out in early January was 12.1%

Got my first 3 month A1c test yesterday ... I will find out the result Monday (I meant to phone my Dr. Office yesterday but forgot...)

I must admit I'm really anxious... The last part of December and early January were really a 'wash', LOL... I got my meter on Jan 4th and testing was all over the place during January... so I don't expect it to be great, but I'm hopeful.

My goal is to be under 7% ... I'm hoping I make it but won't shoot myself if I don't. Regardless of what I find out on Monday, my goal for my NEXT A1c (in mid-June) is under 6% ...

I'll let y'all know what it is once I know...

Keeping my fingers crossed for you. If it doesn't come in <7.0 for you, at least you'll have the pleasure of seeing how far you've come. And on the bright side, it gives you more room to drop for the next one!

Beefy, we will all be waiting for the news. I hope you are under 6%, you have really come a long way and deserve a good A1C. ;)

To be honest I'd be SHOCKED if it was under 6% ... I'm sure hoping for a low-to-mid 6% though.

OK, so it was a 7.0% ...

Not what I'm hoping for, but considering I only got my meter January 4th, and was pretty high through most of January, (and was 12.1% at diagnoses only 3 months ago) I can live with that.

Based on where my BG's are today, I'm heading to a 6% mark pretty fast, so next goal is a sub-6 !!!

I think you've done great.

You wanted to be under 7.0 and were only .1 away. I call that lab flexibility :)

Congrats!

I'm reading your post and it's Tuesday morning here. I'm sure you will have a much better A1c reading as you've done so well. :D I'm due to get another one myself soon... not expecting much for mine as my BGLs are like a yoyo.

Great job beefy! I will be praying that you are under 6% at your next test!
