Hi Dr. Bhargava,
My daughter has been a Type 1 diabetic for 14 years. Her lowest A1c was 8.9 back in 2010. She currently has an A1c of 13, which went down from 14 in 3 months. Do you have any suggestions? She doesn't take her blood sugars regularly as needed. I believe she's tired and in denial which isn't good.

Sorry but I don't see any directions on how to log on to this conversation.

I have a question. I am 65 yr.old, obese female, with type 2, Diabetes, diagnosed over 22 years ago. Keep my A1C generally under 6.0, Last A1C was 12/05/2013, A1c - 5.9.I am on Oral meds. Recently had an appointment with a new Endocrinologist, Who told me I am in "too tight control of my diabetes". That studies have shown that there is no benefit to Seniors to having such tight control. So she cut one of my medicine doses in half.
Are there new BG ranges for Seniors?
ADA just has Adults on their recommended BG numbers chart.
What have you read, or learned about this?
