    hi all

    i have to go for my blood tests later on today. I am hoping that my hba1c would have come down a bit - last one was 12.9 :cry:

    i have been quite good especially the last month and my meter surely indicates that but hba1c is more long term.....so we ll see *sigh*

    i suspect in any case it is going to be being referred back to the hospital.....and who knows...insulin? *double sigh*

    If you have been good I am sure it has gone the correct way.

    @claymic, if you have been taking care yourself it will come down. Sometimes the stress of worrying about it can be worse than the results. I was the same a a month ago and it dropped down to "normal" range. Felt a bit silly afterwards myself but the fact you are watching this closely means your going to be better off in the long run.
