I will start with the good news, my A1C was at 6.9 this morning. I'm very happy to be under 7 but I will call it an ugly victory. After a tough couple of months with way to many readings over 250, I'm shocked to be under 7, I don't know how I pulled off my A1C but I'm not proud of my latest result.
As my nurse practitioner walked in she was stone faced and put down a paper that had all of my readings for the past three months on it, she then asked "what is this?" I laughed and said this is why I came back to you. She said "this can't be real, for years you didn't go over 350 and this has 4 readings above 350, yet your A1C is under 7, we have a lot of work to do." With that said we got to work on changing my basal rates and making sure that I got my dexcom sooner rather than later. The high readings are due mainly to the fact that I haven't had a consistent CGM for the past two months. I'm not going to use that as an excuse, cgm or not I should never be above 300!! That may be asking a lot but when it comes to my health and my diabetes I like to set the bar very high.
I believe that the worst is behind me, I want an A1C under 6.5 when I go back to the doctor in late April. I'm excited to have a challenge and I'm excited to get back to normal when it comes to my diabetes.
