*drum roll please*
I know most adults would be groaning at this, but my endocrinologist wants my A1C at 7.5%, since I am still growing, and my blood sugars will be fluctuating as I grow.
My appointment went well, and I asked about getting a CGM, and they said I have to have a special appointment with their CGM specialists, and my name will be given to them. So, eventually I will have a CGM.
|My pump, with an Ice Bat, to add to its awesomeness.|
Her A1c went from 5.4% at diagnosis, to 7.7%! That is plus 2.3% within three months.
It is probably because she doesn't test her blood sugar until lunch, and forgets to cover stuff.
I try to remind her, but she doesn't like it when I do so, after all, I am the older sister.
Hopefully my endeavor to get a CGM will go well, and my sister will get better at managing her diabetes.
Moral of the Story: 7.5% is good! (For me, at least...)
P.S. I also convinced the endocrinologist to write me a prescription for VerioIQ gold test strips, so a new meter is in my future...
