Your A1c is related to your daily numbers. The better overall control you have the better your A1c tends to be. There are things that affect it like stress, blood donations and hypo episodes. So your real goal is to have numbers that range from 90-120 pretty consistently.

To get those kinds of numbers, you have to work out a treatment plan with your doctor. Count your carbs and get some exercise. Taking good general care of your self and keeping on top of your levels will help a lot.

Congratulations on finding a new doctor. I hated my doctor. Been looking for a new one for about 2 years now. Hoping to find one soon. I want to start seeing a DO. So far I haven’t found one yet accepting new patients.
