Re: [IP] Re: older type one dxed



John,
Thank you for talimg the time to detail that for me.  I appreciate it.
That is actuallyy about where I am .  Thirst, a trilllion potty runs a day,
and blurry vision decreasing since December.  BUT my bg have been lowest 60
highest 145 (fasting) and the A1C came back at 5.3   sigh.  I HATE it when
things are missed because doc's tests can't fit into a neat category, but
the A1C does seem rather conclusive.  Even if it IS a bunch of highs and
lows averaging out.
I am glad you and your wife were ok! That must have been SO scary!
Welcome, again, to the list! Se ya around
Charisma :)
