Re: My comment on the A1C test was relative to AzPaul's comment.
I dont use google to manage my health nor to get medical advice. My Doctors are well aware of my numbers as am I. I understand diabetes better than most here at this website.

Hi Phat,

I've been a type 1 diabetic for quite a lot of years now. And I have to say, despite your words here, it doesn't sound like you understand diabetes well at all. I'm one of the stupidly diabetic diabetics...the "Fragile" type that can go from 60 to 360 in half an hour just by walking down the baking goods aisle in the grocery store. Seriously...I'm really bad. When I was diagnosed in my mid 30's I was about to have a heart attack according to my lipids, and my A1C was about 11.

15 years later, my A1C tests average 6.5, give or take a point or two, and my cholesterol, BP, and associated risk of heart disease is estimated to be better than the average 25 year old. This is with run of the mill medicine and very moderate exercise.

You not getting your numbers under control is telling that you either do not understand how much danger you are currently in, or that you just don't care what your medical professionals tell you and you have some death wish.

Either way, I am afraid for you. Please take care of yourself!

Re: Feste really needs to be Harlequin!
Been hitting the thesaurus?
Impressive.

Which of his words were too big for you?
