Hi. At our next endo visit I am planning on asking if we can reduce our visits to twice a year rather than 4 times a year. We currently travel an hour - which I know is not terribly long - but I feel like all we accomplish is checking his a1c which recently has consistently been under 7. So I'd like to check at home the other 2 times if possible and I am wondering if anyone else does this? We just went to Caleb's 5 year physical and the pediatrician indicated they could do the a1c test the other 2 times a year, which is another alternative, but again, if there's a simple way to get it at home, the less dr visits the better in my opinion.
