Just thought I would share with all of you that I have just passed my 13 months of living with Type 1. Overall A1C is now 5.8% down from 13.8% 13 months ago! Of course there are times when I wish I could just eat what I want when I want without having to take a shot. But overall I have a good outlook on things and seeing my numbers the way they are just makes me want to keep doing what I am doing. Because when I am feeling great, my numbers are great. And I try not to let one high number bring me down. Of course we all probably go through this. Everyday is a new day and everyday is not the same.
That is more than just an update’ that is great news and a huge improvement in A1c. I am 1 year in on insulin and reduced A1c from 13.7 to 5.8. You bested me ;)!!! I wish you the best.
Thank you. You as well! I am still learning everyday.
@Ryand89, great to hear. more power to you.
Wow – congratulations! Sounds like you’re doing great! I’m 63, and was diagnosed with T1D during freshman football in high school, age 14. I too am still learning every day. My last two A1C’s were 6.3, but I’m learning new skills by starting on pump therapy with a CGM sensor in the past couple months. Despite the challenges, it is all well worth the patience and effort that is part of the territory. To me at this stage, I feel like having T1D has been a part of self-improvement and affirmation of life – I feel fortunate to have been born when insulin therapy had been discovered, and now the technology is continuing to improve greatly. Great job for your great work!
That is AMAZING! Congrats and keep up the great job!!! One year later I am still at 7.1 so definitely Kudos!
