My blood test numbers came back and my new A1C reading is in. When I was in the hospital my A1C was at 13.1, basically off the charts. My blood test from last week shows my A1C now at 8.4.
While 8.4 is better than 13.1 it is not in the 6.X range I want to eventually be in. An A1C number in the 6.x range basically means I’m a healthy diabetic, and am successfully mitigating most of the possible issues down the road. So getting to a 6.x number is a big deal to say the least.
On a side note my cholesterol levels came back high. My doctor said this was not surprising. He put me on a cholesterol medication to help me get those numbers in control as well. My goal is to have LDL level below 100. This basically means more exercise in my future.
Here are some pictures of flowers we recently added to the patio area. Yard work is my favorite type of exercise.
