[IP] RE: Home A1c's

I got a Rx from my Endo for the new at-home A1c test after an email 
discussion with him.  He said that he didn't see any benefit in doing them 
any more often than once a quarter since the test are basically a 2-3 month 
average.  He gave me the Rx so that it's one less tube that I have to have 
drawn when I do go in for blood work if that's what I want to do.

I have to agree with him somewhat.  Once a month is the MOST that I can see 
doing an at-home A1c.  Any more often than that seems like overkill.
