I know they've changed a bit in the last couple years and I'd like to have them on reference. I want every 10th of a percent to be meaningful in my progress.

The original mapping of A1c to average blood sugar (now called estimated Average Glucose (eAG)) was a result of the famous DCCT trials. This was most recently updated with a study that actually had people walk around with CGMs (the ADAG study). You can access a good calculator for this most recent conversion formula on the ADA site.

Yikes, how depressing!

@acidrock...
My question, or your result!?

My result! 5.6 = 114 avg :-(

Are you on a quest to more perfectly control glucose homeostasis than the human body without diabetes?

yes, although the 5.6 was the highest for like a year and was right after the marathon and I'd had surgery and not exercised at all at the time of that particular test. I'd hoped to beat it this time but will find out on Wednesday for sure. I've had some colossal screw ups lately so I'm not optimistic.

Hey man that just gives you more room for improvement!

BTW- Liking the beard.......

My result of 7.4 = 166 mg/dl average beats yours in level of depressingness. :P

Yours looks just about perfect!

If it wasn't for that Chinese food, you'd have me beaten. Keep at it and make slow incremental progress. I'm not giving up ever.

That is awesome. I hope I don't give up ever, either!

Sad to say, his calculation sounds the most accurate, compared to my meter results.

I'm not even saying what my last A1C was -- I completely revamped my diet at the end of December and I'm waiting a solid 4 months before I subject myself to another HbA1C test.

I want shiny, fresh, clean and new red blood cells for my first test of 2012. Ha!

Isn't "multiply x 18" just to convert mmol/L to mg/dl? I've never heard it in reference to A1c (aside from people who think mmol/L is the same as A1c because they both cover a similar range).
