I have been a type 1 diabetic since my tenth birthday. I am now 63 years old.
Over the years, i have seen what diabetes can do to a person, and i swore i would
not be one of those statistics; losing limbs, losing eyesight etc.
To date, i have had no amputations, and apart from having the low sugar seizures, i
have kept on top of my diabetes. So much that i can say i have a strangle hold on my
Back in the day, 1970
s era, there was nothing to do with A1C scores. Now that A1C scores are all the rage, my doctor is complaining that my A1C score is 6.0 She says that i should relax a little on the strangle hold i have on the condition, as its not
good to have an A1C score below 6.0. Even if my score went down to 5.8 or less, why is that
a problem? It does not matter what my score is as i always will be a diabetic, whatever my score.
I told my doctor that i would not ease up on my hold on my diabetes, and she was not happy.
Why, before the new diabetic science came around, is an A1C score so important?
