    hi can any one tell me if I am on the right track. Diagnosed October 14 Hb1ac was 146 then 53,62,59,53 I take 3 X metformin 500mg a day and 1vipidia 25g. I did take gliclaside but too many hypos so withdrawn.
    I have reduced my carbs, my meter is a Gluco nexus RX my last 90 day readings are as follows
    7day. 5.6 mol/L
    14day 5.7
    21day 6.0
    28day 6.2
    60day 6.2
    90day 6.5
    I see there is many ways these readings can can be interpreted but that's were I struggle. Am I on track for. Hbalc 48 or below or will they be a lot higher my next text is due 7th March 16
    Any advice welcome

    Here you go :)

    From this, your 90 day meter average of 6.5 mmol/l equates to an HbA1c of approx 40.

    But don't assume your actual a1c will be a precise match to your meter.
    Meters have variances, and it all depends on whether you have been testing at times to catch the fluctuations (my a1c is always a bit higher than my meter suggests it will be).

    But it is looking good.

    Well done :D
