[IPk] HbA1c backtrack

Hi Jos,

I've read in the past few years that HbA1c looks back only about 6-8 weeks 
or so, which would make it unlikely there would have been pre-diagnosis 
information in Robert's latest result. Best of luck with Emily's pump 
application--may things happen soon. It sounds like Robert's doing quite 
well, as long as he's not going hypo much!

Re the rise in HbA1c you've seen with Emily, I wouldn't project exactly the 
same trajectory for Robert--as a nearly if not already pubescent boy rather 
than a prepubescent girl, his hormones, food consumption, and activity 
patterns are probably quite different from Emily's. In the next year+ he may 
well wind up with HbA1cs higher than Emily's because of those, though. 
Puberty ain't easy :-/ .

Hearty congrats and best wishes to your whole family,
