A1C Discrepancies

Posted on

After I graduated college, my blood sugars weren’t under the best control. This was before the continuous glucose monitoring technology was around and I only tested my blood sugar a few times a day (i.e. twice a day probably). Back then, my A1Cs hovered in the 8’s. Not terribly bad but not great either. When I would go to see my endocrinologist, she would look at my poorly recorded log book and tell me that she couldn’t do much with the limited data I provided her. Usually, she was mad that my A1C wasn’t below 7 but yet she couldn’t help me because I didn’t provide her enough information on changes we could make to my basal or bolus rates.
