Good to see other people are below 6. I have been on a roller coaster of A1c since my DDate in 1997 6.3-7.3 usually. Went on the pump in Jan 09 and have been low 6's since. However I went from Walking to running and working out hard about 5 months ago and my last was 5.2. I was shocked and thought maybe they made a mistake.
As for lows, I honestly dont think I have any more lows then when I was riding the brital roller coaster. We'll see when I visit my specialist next month. BTW I am in the best shape of my life, take much less insulan, and lost about 30 lbs since I started working out in October.
My most recent A1C was 5.7, which was on MDI. Today I started on the OmniPod, which hopefully will help me to fine tune and get even lower. That 4.9 is excellent Lloyd, congrats! I hope to be there soon as well.
