Sorry to hear about all this measurement confusion. Whichever “method” you use, the result is always a percentage,mmol/mol or classic percentage as in 7.1%, but please, please, tell your readers which measurement you are using.
Doctors in Germany always use the percentage reading and always add the % sign, which is logical and clear. Why do Brits always have to be different and awkward?
Got my next appointment on Wednesday to get my blood measured.
I'm going to guess what I'll be and see how close I am. Hopefully I don't underestimate it...
I'll go, 42.
4.8 % , Doctor complaining it's too low and must of had mutliple hypo's! Fortunatley I have a libre and proved him wrong!
So got the results.
I'm 37. Or 5.5% I believe.
Delighted. Not bad for 4 and a half years after diagnosis.
I've heard that HbA1c varies between individuals anyway, but nobody really knows to what extent, because that would involve testing large numbers of non-diabetics. So I wouldn't worry too much. My results are always higher than predicted by xDrip or mySugr.
34 or 5.3% I'm tempted to shoot for the 4% range but will be fairly happy if I can maintain this level and loosen up my diet a little bit.
131 on Dx mid Dec18 ; 69 on retest mid Feb 19
41 after 52 years on insulin. Does that mean I am getting younger ??
Maybe the better question is 'What is your HBA1C and how many hypos in a week or a month'??
87 down from 112 so it’s going the right way
Last HbA1c was 67mml/mol (8.3%)
That was my best ever but now my glucose meter is estimating a value of 45mmol/mol (6.3%) which is fab-u-luss if the meter is actually correct
Feb 22nd 2019
Steady weight 83kg 12st 10
Cholesterol level worse than last time so will lose little more weight and more exercise to see if I can get it back on track
10.0 mlmols today
40/5.8% up from 37/5.5% last time. I was expecting higher, tbh, as in the last three months I’ve started working very erratic hours and things have been a bit higher than I like.
I suspect the meter on my pump is set to under-read (for “safety” etc - grrrr), however. I calibrate my CGM to it every morning and check it’s accuracy before bed, and the software for that was predicting 34... I have the ability to use a different code on it, which is reported to be closer to the truth according to other users (ie their HbA1c matches what is predicted using its results), but as I’m currently trying to get my class 2 driving licence, I can’t deviate from the official settings.
It’s still a non-diabetic level though, so I’ll take that.
4.2% (22 according to an online converter). My endo was ok with that. All the other tests she ran gave good results she said. I'm lucky to have good hypo awareness. I've gone back to work and it gets hectic but so far I know when I'm heading low and consume something to avoid getting any lower. I check my blood sugar before bed and have a snack and so far so good.
Still SUPER, Mel!
My most recent HBA1c was November 2018 and was 89 mmol/mol.
When I was diagnosed in 2015 it was 142 mmol/mol. Didn't even show on the doctor's chart it was so high.
That's a great improvement. Well done.
Today my HBA1C was 47....best it's been in a long time
My latest results from this month have me at 73. Not great, but not terrible either, so some work to do. My work/lifestyle varies quite a lot, so I try to look after myself as best as I can, so it reflects in this reading I feel.
