    49 which I am happy with as I had let it drift up too high to 63 when I got measured start of 2020.

    49 means back in the good range. So in percentage I think it works out to 6.6%

    Gonna try get it back down to what I was for the first 5 years of my diagnosis between 2014 and 2019 which was around 34-37 or 5.3-5.5%

    My last HbA1C was 42, translates to 6.0. I exercise every day, Yoga or Pilates and brisk walking. It really helps with blood sugars although I do have to manage lows as a downside. Been T1 for 41 years....

    Mine today was 34 (5.3%) with my last one four months ago being 38 (5.6%) which I'm a bit concerned about as this seems very low. Been T1 for 16 years, but this is the lowest ever.

    I'm waiting to get the libre, but from my finger pricks 70% are within range, with 10% being hypo and 20% hypers.

    39 mmol/mol (5.7%) Tresiba/Fiasp

    6% Low
    74% On Target (3.9-7.9)
    20% High

    I actually thought this was going to be way worse cause the post-Vaccine results have been way worse than normal.

    6.4% or 46mmol/mol. Very happy with this as I eat lots of carbs and don't want to give them up!

    37 or 5.5% today. Still, I tested myself before I went in this morning and my blood sugar was 9.7, a rise of over 4 since I tested on waking, and despite taking plenty of insulin for the small breakfast I had. So all is not well, despite the good hba1c. I just hope these occasional spikes I get due to apparent morning insulin resistance aren't causing damage, like the background retinopathy that was identified a few months ago.

    My A1C was 13.6% three months ago, which I think works out to 125.1 if I did the conversion correctly.
    T1 for 8 years, BMI 22.1, 24yo. MDI, 50 units of tresiba daily. I have terrible insulin resistance (recently learned I make insulin antibodies) but I’ve been working really hard to fight back. My next appointment is in just a few days. Doc said my CGM data looked closer to 8.5%/69.4 the last time he checked, and I’m hoping he’s right.
