Might you not want the A1c at diagnosis as well, for it to be relevant?

yes actually that would be great! thanks!

They didn't do A1C's when I was diagnosed

Type 1 46 years Last A1C 6.4

thanks!

current A1c 5.7
years with diabetes 6
A1c at diagnosis ~12

Type 1 47 years, last A1C 5.7.

No A1C when diagnosed.

First A1C I recall, early 1980s, might have been 13ish. (Doing 1/injection per day, using Lente insulin.)

Note that A1C measured at earlier years, different labs, and in different countries may have a different reference range. In 1980's I recall A1C <8 was considered normal for non-diabetics, according to the way it was measured by my lab. My doctor had what he called the 'under 9 award' when I switched to MDI with newer insulins. Recent A1C testing is more standardized, with 4-6 being non-diabetic range in most cases.

Hi, I'm type 2 for 19 years and current A1c is 5.3

DX in 1984 so 28 years (eek). My current A1C is 5.3 although I have no recollection of what it was when I was diagnosed. I'm sure it was higher than that! 2x marathons and 7x 1/2 marathons and a few 5Ks. 1x black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Can play "Black Dog" on my axe!

Diagnosed 2 and a half years ago, current A1C 7.2

latest A1C is 6.8, I've been a type 1 diabetic for 42 years. I'm on sliding scale Humalog at each meal with a base dose of Lantus every evening. No idea how this statistically figures into whatever it is you're doing , but I'm happy to skew any results you may have.

I've had diabetes for 16 years and my A1c on Oct 9th was 6.6%
--I have no idea what my A1c was at diagnosis.

I've had diabetes for 15 years and my a1c is currently 5.5. When i was Dx'd it was around 9.5
