Had my endo appt Friday - it's just shy of a year since my dx, and my sugars have been running up just a bit higher than they had been over the last 2 months or thereabouts, so I was expecting my A1c to be higher. So, I get to the endo, they take blood for their little in-house A1C tester, and send me to wait for the doctor. He comes in, doesn't even tell me what the number is, just has me look at the chart . . . 5.2!!!!!! So, we spoke for a few minutes, he said, "keep doing whatever you're doing, because it's working fine, call me if you have any questions, and enjoy your summer."

Didn't even get a foot exam :-)

Congratulations Dov! I would certainly hope you do what the doctor said...Enjoy your summer. Maybe you can also share with your friends here in the TuDiabetes community "what it is you are doing," to have such a great accomplishment. We would surely appreciate to learn some tips from you. Some of us here may have a hard time keeping a good A1C level. Happy for you.
