Re: [IP] I'm questioning my last A1c

<<<I just got my A1c and it was 6.9 (the highest it's been since I've been
on the
pump in 5years). <snip> Way higher than normal and my blood sugars have been
averaging around 135 (and I test around 8-10x/day). >>>

According to the chart I have, a 6% is an average 120 BG; a 7% is an average
of 150, therefore, the 135 average (6.9%) you are running sounds like it's
pretty close.

Also, remember, even though you test 8-10x a day, it's not like the results
of a CGMS that tests, what, every 5 min.? A MM rep showed us a chart of BGs
that were *good*, then a chart with the correlating CGMS results and there
were often highs undetected by home BGs. (~_^)
