Wow, I really seriously never thought I would share my A1C on a public blog, but here I am. I’ve come a long way.
A little over a month ago my A1C was 7.2. My preference is to be in the 6s, but frankly I was expecting higher and was pretty darn okay with a 7.2.
Shortly after that, it became my goal to get my diabetes under tight control before my next endo appointment to prove to myself and to my endo that I would be capable of having the safest diabetic/retinopathic (is that a word?) pregnancy possible. That goal was to be achieved within three months.
My CDE agreed to do a monthly A1C test to watch the progress (hopefully), so we established a “baseline” on her machine (since portable machine results can differ slightly from lab results) almost exactly a month ago . It was 7.1.
Now, a month later, it was time for my first “monthly” test.
That makes me smile. I’m on my way, baby. 🙂
