It's all relative. If you were a non-diabetic, you would be lower, probably about 5. BUT, as a diabetic, 5.6 sounds really good. BUT if you were having a bunch of hypos to get to an average of 5.6, that's when the argument "you were too low" can have some validity. Did you have a lot of hypos?
Look what you've done to this rock-n-roll clown!

Hi Greg: Well, I think 5.6 to 6.9 is a good number for Type 1
Diabetics, but there is a variety dependng on the person's body
chemitry, give or take a little. Great number for you. :proud:

My first A1c (22 years ago) was 5.6. I think you'll find that hard to repeat when the honeymoon is over.

That's a great A1c :top:
I’ve faced myself
To cross out what I’ve become
Erase myself
And let go of what I’ve done

Put to rest
What you thought of me
Well I cleaned this slate
With the hands
Of uncertainty

So let mercy come
And wash away
What I’ve done

I’ve faced myself
To cross out what I’ve become
Erase myself
And let go of what I’ve done
