One great advancement in diabetes care over the past few years is the A1C Now Selfcheck made by Bayer.With this great product I'm now able to check my A1C at home. It is almost as easy as testing my blood sugar. A simple finger stick and then putting the blood sample into the blood collector. After that a very simple transfer of the blood sample to the cartridge. In five minutes I have a very accurate reading of my A1C. For anyone that is a diabetic and obsessed with their A1C I strongly suggest this product!!
I did not receive any money from Bayer for the previous paragraph. The product is amazing and this evening made me feel a little better. For the past month my blood sugars have been right where they should be. I will get the occasional high but I've been very happy with my diet, exercise and blood sugar control. I wanted to see where my A1C was to either bring myself down or get that feeling that I'm showing my disease that I'm in control. I was very happy to see that my A1C has dropped .2 in only a month. I have two months until my official A1C test at the doctor and I want to see 6.0-6.3. I love the challenge and feel that I'm on my way to achieving my goal.
