Hi everyone, I just got my son's first A1C results of 6.9. My Dr and CDE say this is "excellent". Maybe I am too new at this to fully understand totally - but I've been thinking...for the first two months we had a lot of lows - at least 2 a week (lows in the 40's ) then the third month we started running ranges on the higher scale even some high 300's. Yes our honeymoon is now over Would the low numbers not 'average' out the high numbers giving us a good A1C? Making this not really "excellent"? I guess I'm feeling kind of guilty because we really did not strive for a good A1C when first dx'd our main goal was to just keep him alert and feeling better. Now, of course (that we've become somewhat pros) we want to make sure that his next A1C will be good (hopefully excellent) but not expecting it. We are also going to be starting the pump in August so will we really have another good A1C in Sept? Am I making any sense? Thanks for 'listening!'
