In just a little bit over a month, with the help of some good basal rates, I've been able to drop my A1C significantly! Granted, this is an at-home A1C kit, so I'm sure this number is not 100% accurate as a lab test, but it is accurate enough to tell me that I am probably solidly in the 6's these days, and that makes me SO happy!
I fully anticipate an A1C as good, if not better than this by my next endo visit at the end of September. Hallelujah!
Thank goodness for pumps, CGMs, and lots of hard work on the part of me and my diabetes team (in which I fully include my husband, God, and all of you readers, too!)
