My last pre-pump A1c was 5.8 and my first post-pump A1c was 6.4. However
the second one went down to 6.1, and I  expect the next one to be about
the same. 

I wonder if people who have low A1c numbers BEFORE going on the pump are
more likely to see rises. I'm pretty sure the reason mine went up is
that I'm not riding low most of the night like I did on NPH. 

If that's the reason, a higher A1c is actually a sign of improvement,
not deterioration.
