Okay, so the doc gives us a percentage about our blood sugars, but what does that number really mean in your day-to-day blood sugar readings?
The Joslin Diabetes Center printed a cool article on the eAG: Estimated Average Glucose reading, so you can see where your numbers are at throughout the day if your A1C is a certain percentage.
Check out the details: Understanding Your A1C percentage.
Thanks for the link,the info helpful
For online reference (and for the slightly wider range) I also like using the link I originally posted at: http://juvenation.org/forums/p/244/2880.aspx#2880
It is: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/A1Ccalc.php
The other nice thing about that tool is that it converts between the two main glucose measurements.
That is a nice little write-up!
It's a little scary that the chart only goes to 12. When I was in my terrible teens, my A1C was up to 13 point something. I'm down to 8.2 now and shooting (pun intended?) for 6 point anything.
Thank you for the link!
