Over a year ago I was diagnosed with type 1, following a series of unrelated events that lead me to ask my doctor for a blood test. Random or God driven, (haskah pratit) either way, my diagnosis came just 2 weeks shy of my 26th birthday. How weird, to have juvenile diabetes at the starting point of adulthood.
At diagnosis my a1c was 6.1% and my fasting blood sugar was 127.
The irony is that those numbers aren't even so bad.
Mid way through the year, my a1c was 5.3%.
Yesterday, a year past diagnosis, my a1c was 5.77% - just outside of the normal zone of 5.7% - and higher than I expected it to be. I feel like I got a B+ for what I thought was A+ work; the constant metering and injecting... For a number not quite where I want it to be.
