    :)Just came back from the clinic and was informed that I had a hbA1 of 6.1 or 43%. This was my first hbA1 on my new Medtronic 670g pump so was very pleased with my results. I have been a Type1 diabetic for 41 years and basically eat what I want and when I want, so to get control of this nature is very reassuring. I have made some further change's which I believe will give me an even better result next time.

    5.5 for me. Seeing better numbers, despite having steroid injection.
    There really is no logic to this.
