Hi! My name is Cassidy Smith and I am doing a AP Stat project on type 1 diabetes! If you could please just post your current A1C and how many years youve had diabetes that would help me soooooo sooooo much! Ive been a type 1 for 4 years and my current A1C is 12.4.
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
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 15 years and my a1c is currently 5.5. When i was Dx'd it was around 9.5
