    You've joined a forum full of many, many knowledgable people with diabetes who are well aware of the things you post.

    I understand that English isn't your first language but your posts come across as quite arrogant sometimes.

    As a fellow man of science how about being a little less arrogant.

    If you read my signature you would realise that it is a photo of my son and two of his colleagues :angelic:

    By Your Manner You Wrote:
    Your thread with a bunch of disparate links that show what complications are, a somewhat condescending link regarding blood vessels from wikipedia and the ADA Standards in Diabetes Care document don't constitute a particularly helpful set of information.

    1.
    The important information for this matter as provided by the NIH.Gov Link
    you did not even mention. NIH.Gov As The World Reference In Medicine !
    ( Conclusively you did not reading it. )

    2.
    The Wikipedia Link just as completion of the NIH.Gov Matter with even
    electron-microscopic pictures for better understanding.
    ( By your comment you did not really look into it. )

    3.
    The 2017 Standards are made by the Professional Practice Committee
    as shown by its Report of 142 Pages and now worldwide applied, but
    maybe not in England.
    ( By your comment you did not reading it. )

    Like this it’s really pointless !

    Certainly :) My last few HbA1Cs were 5.2, 5.1, 4.7 and 4.6%.

    Your 5.2% represents HbA1c 33 mmol/mol and average Glucose of 5.7 mmol/l
    Your 5.1% represents HbA1c 32 mmol/mol and average Glucose of 5.5 mmol/l ( The Max. of Healthy Range ! )
    Your 4.7% represents HbA1c 28 mmol/mol and average Glucose of 4.9 mmol/l
    Your 4.6% represents HbA1c 27 mmol/mol and average Glucose of 4.7 mmol/l
    ( By the latest Norm )

    Do you have an Insulin Pump in a close-loupe CGM-System combination ?
    If YES, which Insulin Pump you like ?

    My 5.1%
    ( From the former Norm ) represents HbA1c 28 mmol/mol and average Glucose of 4.9 mmol/l
    This under daily meals of even CH 100-180g at each meal to gain weight !

    My Son’s max. 5.5%
    ( From the former Norm ) represents HbA1c max. 32 mmol/mol and average Glucose of max. 5.5 mmol/l

    We have no Insulin Pump presently.

    @Ch.R. I know what my results mean, thank you :) I've had Type 1 for more than twenty years.

    Yes, I have a pump now. It's an Animas Vibe. No, it isn't a closed loop system. I do all the work myself. I do normal finger prick tests (I do not have a continuous blood glucose meter).

    BUT my HbA1C was pretty much the same on injections - that is, around 5%.

    I naturally got the idea that you most have an Insulin Pump,
    because I know well what it really need just by handcrafted.
    By your System not CGM controlled, no wonder to be same.

    But sorry, to me any Pump not by close-loupe CGMs controlled
    makes no sense and I don’t like anything just like rinsing the
    Flowers, not in Diabetology, but the Hibiscus Flowers and
    watching the Hummingbirds, I really like with fascination !

    I mean this with all politeness @Ch.R. I have no idea what your above post is saying.

    My HbA1C was basically the same on the pump and on injections so I have no idea why you're saying you "knew" I had a pump.

    As you seem to have little idea what benefits a pump brings, I suggest you research it further.

    I get it..!

    @azure ?

    "I naturally got the idea that you most have an Insulin Pump,

    Basically I think the OP is more into the idea of closed loop systems.
    But he's impressed with your A1c.

    The flower "thing" is a reference to your avatar. Just small talk about watering plants & collecting "nectar points."

    Bit off topic the last bit. But we'll let it slide... ;)

    @Jaylee The first bit sounds plausible but the flower bit came out of nowhere : D

    Why did he suddenly mention watering flowers and watching hummingbirds? : D

    I’m sorry if my explanations cannot been understood.
    It means that any Insulin Pump System naturally should
    been CGMs controlled to fulfill it’s purpose, but today
    some marketing fools already like to declare that as
    Artificial-Pankreas to jump on the train, where the real
    Artificial Pankreas means only the Dual-Pump System to
    provide Insulin and Glucagon when necessary according
    the applied CGM Insulin & Glucagon Sensors !

    The same US People already talking about that it should
    been even a Triple-Pump System considering the Peptide-C
    also, since the Normal Body is producing this in the same
    amount as the Insulin and the Peptide-C has also its function.
    ( If this is still not understand, don’t worry I will do a Post
    about in the near future and will also inform about the
    possible next generation of a direct-drive system now also
    in the doing. )

    PS: By like rinsing the Flowers, I did mean by uncontrolled
    ( Because without Sensor controlled. ) just poring Insulin
    in the Body if need or not need. Sorry !

    Thanks @Ch.R. I understand what you were saying now :)

    I don't agree that my pump pours insulin into my body whether it's needed or not. That's the whole point of pumps. You take the insulin you need. My pump never gives me unneeeded insulin. I don't have a CGM but I test my blood sugar and adjust my pump as I need.

    Sorry !
    It’s a technical matter. Principally for Basal Insulin it need no
    Pump, can take Toujeo or Tresiba instead.
    By your Pump You need to control constantly instead having
    this automatically as safety all by sensor-controlled and just
    set a hysteresis of an upper-limit and a lower-limit, that’s all.

    No, I don't need to cntrol it constantly. And no basal insulin suited my needs. My pump provides exactly the basal insulin I need.

    The reason I don't have a CGM is because I can't afford one. My pump was free. I have no problem finger prick testing. My pump settings are pretty much spot on so I don't need to adjust it much.
