A1C readings came back with a 6.3. Having a CGM, a 6.3 feels quite mediocre, although getting a 6.3 before would have felt like ultimate victory. Amazing how this little device changes your perspective so much.
Since getting the CGM, I haven't had an A1C over 7, although I've also been very active the whole time. I guess it is time to start buckling down and aiming for the elusive 5's. That means I have to be less reactive and even more proactive with sugar control. Some days I can get it done, but other days, life gets in the way. The girls need to eat, and I barely have time to cook my own breakfast before running out the door. There have been more than a few occassions when I'd get to work and realize I hadn't taken insulin. A great feature of the pump is that I can then over-correct with insulin and watch the drop, catching it with some extra carbs before I go low. I guess it all depends on how busy work is.
