I had an appointment with my primary physician yesterday. He performed an A1 test on me and told me that my diabetes is ravishing my insides. I thought that was the worse thing I would ever hear. Funny thing is, my Endocrinologist seems to think that I am doing just fine.

What was the A1c result? Higher BG's indicated by higher A1c's can cause serious damage to your body. Anything under an HbA1c of 7 is indicative of good control. If you were over 7, he might have been trying to give you a wake-up call. Without knowing your history and experience with your endo, had your prior A1c been 11 and your current one 9, the endo might have been happy with your progress but there still a need for improvement. We really need more info here.
