As the subject says, saw my doctor for my normal 3 month check up this morning. Got my A!C results this afternoon. My A1C went down a little from 5.4 to 5.1.

Wow!! congrats!! that is great. The lowest I have been is 5.2. I am usually 5.3 - 5.4 the last few yrs. I have strived to get it down to below 5.2, but can't seem to.

I was diagnosed last December with type 2. My A1C was 13+ at that time. I worked hard and got it down to 6.8 but then in March, I fell and broke my hand and I guess that affected my desire to keep working because my next A1C was 10.8 so back to the drawing board. Now I'm fighting a staph infection in my right foot which is causing swelling and pain in my right foot and leg. I just wonder what's going to happen next. Ever since I turned 4x in 2013, I've had nothing but health problems. Anyway, it's cold here … too cold

Those are great numbers. Good for you! Why are you going every 3 months? Usually, once you get below an A1c of 7, the put you into a 6 month visit schedule.
