My last 4 were:

 

9.3 in May 2013

8.3 in August 2013 (started carb counting and lowered insulin taken drastically - yes too much insulin can result in a very bad hba1c)

6.8 in November 2013

6.4 in December 2014

 

I am due my next one sometime in the next week - it will probably be higher than Novembers and Decembers (I am betting somewhere in the 7s)

I went from 7.8 to 6.8 All it took was getting back in control and stop being a dumb@$$.  My doctor was pleased with the jump and gently reminded me not to let it get that high again.  But my thyroid test was a still a 3.07 not the 2 the endo wants.

Just got my A1C test results in.

 

At diagnosis on Jan 29th I was 10.4

The drew blood from me Apr 29 and it is 6.7!

 

Not as low as I was hoping, but I'm making progress.

 

Now lets see if I can get the next one under 6.  :)

My results from yesterday's blood draw just showed up on my doctor's online report.  My A1c was

 

5.6!  

 

Though it sounds good, I'm not actually all that pleased with my control.  I had too many lows this time.  I think I'm really better off keeping the A1c at around 5.8.

My latest A1c was 7.8.  I'm on a pump but my meal bolus is out of control.  I can eat a piece of bread and my sugar shoots up to 300 and can take 25 units to level it out.  My doc says I'm on too much insulin but only suggested u-500 instead of the u-100 I'm currently on.  I tried Symlin but didn't like the injections.  I am now going to try Metformin.  My sugars are up and down all day and night.

Carol and Angie well done... Your results look good you both may not be satisfied with ut and further eant to imporve it but they are good.

 

Jpadowm i can understand your pain buddy. My shgar also jumps right after eating but I'n not on Symlin.

May I ask you buddy how many carbs you take in a meal? I take around 60-65 per meal, though breakfast is totally non-carby.

6.1 as of yesterday afternoon, blood sugar at the time was 125, not fasting.  Not as bad as I thought it would be considering how lax I have been with diet the past few months and all the med changes.  But I still want to be below 6.  It's time to tighten up.
