I am of to the Of to the Diabetic Educator tomorrow- With the hope of going down in medication- Am I nervous? maybe just a little.. I have done everything I can to bring my numbers down and I am between the 4's and the 5's which is in normal range. If I don't well I have kind of resigned myself to the fact what will be will be. so please keep your fingers crossed for me. I would be so grateful..Thanks- With the hope of going down in medication- Am I nervous? maybe just a little..

Howdy Lavender, with an A1c like that you ought to be a shoo in for a lowered dose. Praying it will be so

Thanks so much James.. It's actually my mmol/L.. I still haven't had a A1c yet.. I am assuming this may happen tomorrow… I was only diagnosed type 2 in July…

OH OK I was not aware that reading was in mmol/l.

According to my calculator ( ~ http://diabeticgourmet.com/Tools_and_Calculat... ) your readings in USA #s = low 70s to low 90s. I still would say a lower dose would be a very good possibility!

I am proud of and excited for you!

My A1c I found out today at diagnoses was 9.2 but the DE said to me today that my number would be much, much lower when I have the test again in the last week in Jan 2013 if I keep up with what I am doing now… So good news all around today.
