    Mine are back today at 45. I'm very happy as end of June they were 101.... (I fell off the wagon from January to june)
    Hopefully won't fall again.
    Well done every one else with your numbers.

    Been high for years, peaked at around 98mmol/mol 3 years ago. Since got it down to 68. Bloods have been much better recently so hoping it'll be in the 50s next time round :)

    My latest one was 57/7.4 which is now classed as poor, however a month ago this would have been good!! However I am having way too many lows at moment so actually should be higher....

    Not been on the Forum for a while. Disappointed that mine is 66 (8.2) when it was 53 (7.0) in May. Blood pressure is causing issues, gaining weight, and generally unwell. Need to get back on track so today I start again.....

    Diabetic since I was born (approaching 22 years) and things were very crazy for me as teen. So my recent HbA1c is 7.9%. This is a tad high but during the trouble in my teens it was upwards of 25%. So major improvement

    I am a new diagnosed Diabetic (just 2 weeks) and my first HbA1c came out as 14.8 %. Now working on dropping it with tight control, diet and injections already.
    Seems like I have a new target in my life to achieve :)
    I wonder why in my report it says reference values to be btw. 0-5?
    Whats the ideal number to achieve in this?

    54 in October and 54 in March earlier this year at my hospital. My GP just told me yesterday that I was 58 (and that was taken only 2 weeks before the one done at the hospital in October!)

    Had blood test recently, nurse said i was 5.4 down from 9.7. I tried to tell her that my iron levels are probably very low and that the specialist told me my iron levels need to be correct before i get true hb levels. She said no, so she must know more than the specialist. Been T1 for 1 year now. 62 yo. Confused
