I went to Dr. yesterday and had a A1C test, yippee skippee it was lower than the last one. 7.2 down from 8.4. Was very happy, I was wondering why there is not a place in the log to put our results of the A1C test, I have been using the log faithfully, I love it. My next question is about my bs's running high all of a sudden even though my routine has stayed the same, then the drop back to normal well normal for me. I have had this for several weeks and now I am testing normal again, I am confused?

Where do you find the A1C posting and what log? I use one sent by the meter companies.

At the top of the page when you log in there are blocks that say About You Discussion, and stuff like that, click on about you and then some more will come up and right next to About You is a block Log, click in there and it gives you a place to chart your sugars your A!C it also gives you an average of what your blood sugars are running. I like it because I don't always remember to take my bs numbers with me and at the clinic where I go my doc brings up this site I log in and there they are, she is now informing all her diabetic patients about this site. MardiL I hope you understand how to get there I am not much good at giving directions on the computer I am still learning.

Well, you’ve figured out the A1c thing, but yes, I have gone through the seemingly random highs.
From what I understand it’s really an individual thing and can be related to anything and everything. You may have stress or the start of an illness you don’t physically feel, but the liver and/or pancreas is reacting to. You may think you’re over that conversation you had with your jerk of a boss, but your brain still might be churning it over. Your blood isn’t always the same level concentration throughout your body at all time either (remember that one single test is just a brief snapshot in time). It can be as simple as different brands of a certain food too. Hot weather raises mine slightly too. While you might feel you are in a routine, inside could be anything but.
Worst case scenario, your condition is progressing, so it is worth watching. Well, that and looking into what things might be upsetting your routine that you aren’t noticing.
My take on it anyway.

You are right on about something being out of whack that I didn't realize, my Dr. and I figured it out yesterday. I didn't think that it was such a problem and that it would effect me the way it has. My oldest son and his other half moved 150miles away and my youngest son is Wyoming, the thought that I was all alone was getting to me worse than I thought. I still have people here where I live so don't understand my panic thanks for bring this up you opened me up to new ideas to look at when things go awash thanks again Nick1962 appreciate your help.

Yeah, I would say that is a big stress that you'll carry for a while, but now that it's out in the open at least you can work with it. We all go through separation anxiety during the course of our lives - parents pass away, new jobs away from family, etc. Never think it has any effect on our blood though. Best wishes with that!

Thanks Nick, I still am amazed at what can cause are sugars to go up and down. I always assumed that it was what we were eating and lack of exercise.

Well whip me, beat me, take away my charge cards. I found how to post my A1C, I am not running with a full deck today, sorry. but still want to know if any one else has had the weird bs's normal for months then out of blue run High for few months then back to normal, no routine change or med changes.
