    6.6 (half bottle red wine last night so that may have helped).

    Hi everyone,
    I just got my latest result back, which was 6.3. I've had two tests before, which were 5.6 and 6.1, respectively. I was getting hypos very often before, though, and during the past months I've been been getting kind of hypo-phobic. So I've been keeping my levels a bit higher so as not to worry too much about it getting low.

    RussG, your consultant advised you to keep your levels a bit higher - mine did as well, but I didn't really listen since I desperately wanted a low HbA1c. It is only now that I have gotten worried about hypos that I started following my consultant's advise. Funny how it goes. :)

    Anyway I thought my latest result would be significantly higher than what it was, so I'm relieved.

    My results have always been between 5.8% & 6.2% until 6mths ago when it was 6.7%. My Doctor was happiest with the 6.7% and said when the results are hovering around 6% it probably means I am dipping too low at times and perhaps not realising it. I'm just about to make my next appointment (as it's been 6mths and the hospital haven't sent me one!) and expect my reading to be back down around 6% going by the averages on my meter.

    6.5% is what my doc would consider "perfect"

    I've just got my best result ever - 5.0 - absolutely delighted. I'm eating an average of 30g carbs a day which is obviously worth the effort :clap: I've noticed that since I reduced the carbs, my appetite has diminished.

    Edit: I see I have posted on the T1 forum, but there are also Type 2s here. I am Type 2.

    My latest was 9.0, wasn't too annoyed with it as it previously was 9.6.

    Mines havent been lower than 12.1 for the last 13 years and Ive recently just found out that it doesnt mean my average BG is 12.1.. that in fact its averaging somewhat higher.. correct???
