"I'm on a pump so I test 6-8 times per day. Same comps as you Randy, but after 30yrs I expected something to go wrong. Still kicking. A1C 6.1 Dec2011. Stuffing & pumpkin pie? I don't think so. Merry XMAS."

"I don't think an A1c of 5.7 is too tight/fanatical. There are a large number of people on TuDiabetes who maintain A1cs <6% without suffering from excessive hypoglycemia. However, I do question the long term safety of trying to maintain such…"
