My HbA1c results the past 2 years
Before that I had results as low as 5.1 %, which at that time was more a concern to my doctors than to me, because I didn't had that many low, and certainly not as many requiring assistance in their treatments as I have had afterwards, even with higher A1c's.
I will have to admit that the perfectionist inside me most certainly aims for an A1c that is normal, i.e. in non-diabetic range (4.6-6.4 % as far as I remember from patophysiology classes). Not at any costs though. The current 5.3 % result, while in this range, stores too many low lows. I cannot remember ever having tested, or even being able to test, at 1.1 (20) or lower (my meter just reads LO for values of 1.1 and below) in all the years I was on MDI. I have already lost count on the number of times this has happened while on the pump, but it is at least a handful of times. Of course these lows are somehow outweighed by the highs that has also been present, especially after soccer games, but that just shows that the BG-curve has not leveled out as much as anticipated. Hopefully this will happen with time, but it is a bit difficult to be patient, when you were promised results, potentially within 3 months.
