    Last one was 44 or 6.2%. Got a consultant appointment tomorrow but with being full of cold and BS constantly running high for over the past few months (due to illness and cold weather no doubt) not really looking forward to this one :-(

    7.5 or 58. Sort of a B minus. On a pump and resrict carbs. Exercise too but still not bad but not normal for a normal himan.

    I used to have (manage) regular hypos, in the belief that it helped to maintain a good HbA1c. I have always had (still have) solid awareness of low sugar - guess I'm one of the lucky ones!
    However, there is a definite change in policy, advising against hypos, due to other complications associated with them.
    Downside is that most recent HbA1c was 67: C-, must try harder!!
