My coworker and I compete with who has the better a1c. She's been winning this last year because I couldn't beat her 6.4. Guess what my a1c was this morning… 6.3!!!


The doctors office knew I was competing, they asked if I wanted a copy!

Of course!

Keep up the good work. I think it's a great idea to compete. I'd lose for sure !!

Great, congrats. My goal is to be in the 6's. When I used to try to get lower, I dramatically increase the number of hypoglycemic attacks. A1c in the 6's is good enough…Have a good day.

You can do it, I believe in you. This my first visit to six-ville … I mostly maintain around seven. The secret is to not stress about it… And competition ;)

Not really, our goal is just to beat the other one. We're both nurses and…"diabetic champions" ( nurses that educate diabetic pts )

so what makes an A1C a better one than the other ?
In other words how low do you go ?

I understand what you're saying, we won't go too low! Promise!

As a T1 Iron thinks that he should not go below 7.0 A1c to be safe (correct me if I'm wrong iron) so anything below that is dangerous, skating on thin ice as it were.

Well, not higher than 7.0, but close to that.
My doctor said that 6.5-7.0 is a good range.
I really don't know how it differs between those with T1 and those with T2 (I am T1).

Congratulations! I love it when I'm winning :) Do the two of you have an 'ideal' a1C you've discussed with your doctors? Have you talked about how you can celebrate once you both reach your goals? That would be a party I would most definitely look forward to!
