Thank you Amy for noticing and responding.
I took the liberty of downloading your video from youtube and uploading it here (DC) so that all could see the importance of testing to help maintain a healthy and productive life while living with diabetes.

Hopefully all diabetics stay on top of their a1c! This is an excellent video and should answer any questions one might have on the subject.

I didn't know about the different results from different labs. That's very interesting.

This video is a clear and informative tool that has helped me understand the purpose of this test and its value. I never understood the value of it and I do now.Guess I better get another test done,
