I tried a search, but was unsuccessful to find a similar thread, so I apologize if this is redundant. I'm curious what others' a1c numbers were at diagnosis because whenever I mention what Meg's was to anyone familiar with the rating I always get GASPS and looks of . Meg's was over 14 Not having anyone in dh's or my side of the family with T1D, it wasn't even on the radar in the months leading up to her hospitalization. Of course now I can look back on the last six months or more and the signs are so glaringly obvious to me. It's embarrassing, but I know that's not uncommon for a parent in my position.
