Hello every one I have been seeing a lot of you talk about A1c and I just wonted to add to it well I was not a diabetic and I went into the hospital for my asthma and a nurse gave me and over dose of insulin. That almost killed me but thank God I'm here. well to make a very long storie short I stayed in the hospital for all of 2006 that was the year I became a diabetic and my very first A1c was 7.6 and I did not know what that was all I now that they said it was bad and when I went to class I learn a lot about every and I try to became the A1c champion for our area in order to do that I had to get my diabetes under control and I did the very next test my A1c 5.3 and has remained a 5.3 which is well below the American Diabetes Association average or national average. I have my test every three months. The reason for A1c test is to give us an overall picture of how well we have our diabetes under control. Let me hear from you.
