I decided that I wanted to do an experiment. I had one test left on my A1C now Self-Check meter and I just started my Dexcom 12 days ago, so I figured I would give this a go.
My starting point for my A1C is 6.8 (! that's great for me, considering this time last year it was 8.5).
So after 3 months, will my A1C be lower?
What about my body weight?
Will my food choices change?
Let's start this journey. For the next three months I will be posting musings about my thoughts on what the CGM did for me that week.
I know that A1C is only a number and it really doesn't represent everything to do with diabetes care, but I think this may be important. Especially for when it eventually gets approved in Canada and I have to fight with my insurance to cover it ;)
(For non d-peeps: A1C is a measurement that can help a person with diabetes figure out what their average blood sugar has been in the past 2-3 months. The recommended number is below 7.0%....so I am just under that.)
