[IP] How to answer a Q?

I often have medical personnel ask how my BG usually runs. I answer with my 
A1c and they say, no what does a test usually run? Yesterday the nurse said, 
"Don't you test?" I said, "I do 6-14 x a day. My A1c is 5.7"  I have had T-1 
63 years.

She was getting upset with me. I said, "Let's talk about C'mas day - I was 
60, 63, -  -  - and 482. I had started a new med a couple of days prior and 
think it was affecting me - at a prescribed 1/2 dose. I had to drop it after 
10 days due to 15 diff symptoms.

So, my Q for T-1s, how do you answer what your tests usually run???
