My a1c went from 5.9 to 6.3. I have only been as high as 6.5 I think. I have been diabetic for about 9-10 yrs.

I think your A1c is great my Endo says to try to always stay below 6.5 so congrats. It's hard some times especially if you're a control freak, like ME! Sometimes the stress can make it worse, so I am working on just accepting those high numbers when they do occur!

Good #. Life can cause ups no matter how hard you try. Hope all the next tests have less stress messing them up.

6.3 is a good range though. I would not worry. Specially after so many years. You are doing great.

Well that 6.3 is not etched in stone, Turtle, it can be changed!

Plus, you have had other issues in the immediate past which undoubtedly raised your Blood Glucose (BG) levels just going through them.

Praying for your improving health
