A1c = 5.7

November 3rd, 2011 at 01:29 pm

The lab called yesterday and said some of the lab work ordered for me last week didn't get done so I have to go back in to get more blood drawn. What a pain. I went back this morning and did that and picked up the results from the previous tests.

My A1c was 5.7 down from 6.1 in August. This is great! A1c is used to measure blood glucose over a 3 month period and is used to diagnose you with diabetes. Over 6.0 is considered diabetic. I want to get under 5.5 which is not diabetic although close. I would actually like to get under 5 eventually, but I've improved a lot this year from 7.3 at the beginning of the year down to 5.7 now.

My mom got copies of her blood work today and her cholesterol and trigs are bad, but her A1c is 6.2. I'm surprised the dr isn't talking to her about diabetes meds or changes in lifestyle. She was mad because they know nothing about her and all the health people tell her she should exercize. She's been exercizing since she was 16. She walked almost every day for 40 - 45 min and does Curves 3 - 4 times a week, plus she does stuff at home too. She's always done a lot of exercize. So it makes her mad when they tell her she needs to exercize.

I finished reading the library book Dark Predator by Christine Feehan. Paranormal - excellent.
