We just received a call from our Endocrinologist giving us the results of our first A1C after diagnosis for my now 10 year old boy. At diagnosis he was 13.5. While he was sick he was not real sick, we had caught it just in time as he would have probably had to get admitted into Intensive Care within a few days. Anyways I am getting away from the real story, our goal was 8.5 to 7.5 and our nurse just told us that the lab they took on Monday cambe back at a 6.5! I was so happy. We have had sevral highs here in the past couple of weeks and I was worried it would give us a higher A1C, so getting a 6.5 seems pretty good. I may be getting ahead of myself here and I know we will probably fluctuate, but it was nice to get some good news. Thank goodness for the improvments that have been made in the insulins! Most of all I am proud of my son. He has handled this so well!
