Went to the doctor this past Tuesday and got my first A1C since I was diagnosed in April and so did my husband. We were both diagnosed in April.His starting A1C was >14 and his BG was 445. My starting A1C was 9.5 and BG was 382. Now the good news. My A1C at the doctor was 6.1 with an average BG of 122. His A1C was 6.9 with an average BG of 151. So we are HAPPY!!

Great! But, don't try to over-correct. Anything in the 6.s is fine. If you try for lower, you are risking low sugar reactions which can be equally deadly especially if you're on insulin.

That's Fantastic! I am hoping to see similar improvement, although at an A1c of 16, I think anything would be an improvement!

You both are on the right track. I was diagnosed in July with A1C >12 and by October it was at 5.1. Continue with positive thinking and change your lifestyle. Congrats
