At the end of 2011 I noted that I had had a rough couple of months with illness, and my average BG had risen to 150 mg/dl.
This month my sensor average is showing 141 mg/dl, with:
- 12% above my high limits
- 87% within my normal limits
- 1% readings under my low limits
Translated to A1C, I would be at about 6.6 right now. (and then there's the other 2 months before... I did an at home A1C test and it said 6.8, okay with me, but no change...)
More importantly, I'm feeling pretty healthy lately. I'm trying to work on the quality and quantity of my sleep. I think I succeeded in getting rid of the sinus or dental infection that was giving me chronic headaches and unpredictable glucose control. I'm using small doses of exercise to increase my insulin sensitivity. I am enjoying less caffeine, and fewer pints of cider. Lately, I've had a couple "perfect" days when my glucose level stayed solidly in range and it felt like I had a handle on it. :)
Things that I need to keep an eye on: during a period of less sleep in late-January I started to have more heart arrhythmia episodes. I'm hoping that it's just a flare up and not a new reality.
