"My son was diagnosed in February and his initial A1C was 8.3. At that point our endo told us they like kids his age (3) to be below 8.5. At his most recent appointment at the beginning of this month, his A1C was at 6.3. We were told that that may be…"

"We had the same feedback and, honestly, I'm not sure my son (10 yrs) has ever had an AiC in the 6s except during a time that he was experiencing a lot of lows. We keep very close watch on my son's numbers and do keep him slightly higher at…"

"When Malcolm was little (dx@2) the docs also recommended his A1C be in the 7s - in fact even now that he is 17 the A1C they would like to see is in the low 7s or high 6s. Even if the A1C is higher you will still get the occasional low - happens all…"

"There was a study done a year ago where they were talking about parents of Type 1s being encouraged to run higher A1c's to avoid lows, but that it was ultimately in the child's worst interests. I will see if I can find it and link to…"

"My daughter's doctor said the same thing between7.5 and 8. They told me that was because if the A1C is lower they assume they are trending on the low side. My daughter's A1C was 7.4 and I will be honest we did a happy dance because no…"

"I'd say if you can keep it that low, go for it. She probably has some residual beta cell function/insulin production, and a low A1C could help preserve that. If not, I don't know how to do it! The general recommendation is to let young…"

Take care of yourself!! I know that is difficult with sick children, especially adding two hour blood sugar checks in. Hope that things will be better next week!!
