When was your last A1C test done?

What was the result?

When is your next one scheduled?

Did you know that having a A1C level of 7% and above, puts you, as a diabetic at risk for the following complications, and more:

Eye Disease, Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Neuropathy, Nerve Disease

The higher your blood glucose level is, the more damaging the effects of diabetes on your internal organs.

Managing your diabetes will allow you to manage your A1C level, thereby lessening your chance of developing a possible life threatening complication associated with diabetes.

Isn't your life, and happiness worth it?

My last A1c in Oct was 5.7. With good control, I only have the A1c twice a year now, so an April visit will be my next one. Good control and good health is certainly worth all the work it takes to get and stay there.

My last AC1 was in December, 20l0 and was 6.1. Next one is in March. I too, go every three months so I can stay on track with my dr and the disease. I am a work in progressk, to put it mildly..

My last A1C was done in December. The result was 6.2. My next one is scheduled for March. I have them every three months this way the doctor can help me control my diabetes.
My life and happiness is definately worth being seen by a doctor. I want to be around to see my grandchildren grow up.
