    Thank you :). I don't want to tempt fate, but I've got a good feeling about this HbA1c judging by my own self-testing.

    Same boat! Should get mine back tomorrow. Don’t want to tempt fate either but will be disappointed if it’s not less than my last - 56. There, I’ve tempted it now!

    I am due to have mine done next week waiting to see if our surgery will do it.
    My first result in Oct was off the scale 101 Jan 2020 44 hoping next one will be lower still.

    7.7. Still fairly new to all this & not seeing any steady patterns yet. It has been in the 9s the last couple of days. Also I forgot to take my Metformin tablet yesterday evening so quite pleased it wasn`t higher :)
