Re: [IP] My A1C!!

Summer -

 Just keep nodding & saying ahuh, & then do what you've been doing. The Endo did
the same thing to us when Joshua's A1C was 7 - switched everything! We followed
instructions & his numbers went whacky. After 2 weeks we went back to what we
were doing, 2nd A1C was 6.5. Let them give you "suggestions" & then do what
works for you.

Shelley - Oh & congratulations!
