"but I can tell you that the pump" 
might i add, 
"with home testing" ??

if only , i could have expressed my thoughts, so eloquently....


another response included:
>>The A1C also provides information about the BG when we don't test, 

id think, if you pump, you test....


>>But as you know, the 
>>standard deviation in the correlation between A1C and complications is

I love "standard deviation" a good term for:
 "well, it might make a difference, then again, maybe not".

I sure am reading a whole lot of :

"link hemoglobin glycation to say retinal bleeding"

"the glycation process "
