As diabetics this is a really important test telling you and your doctro what your blood sugar has been running for the previous two to three months. The national goal is an A1C under 7 but if yu are older than 65 the goal is higher now because of the risk of hypoglycemia, which can be deadly in the elderly.
Mine was 6.2 and I am one happy camper. I was started on Victoza last July and it has done a really nice job on my blood sugar and my weight. Before I started the Victoza my A1C was 7.6 and I wasn't happy about this. I was also taking 36 untis of insulina nd still my blood sugar wasn't where it was supposed to be. I am now taking 25 units and may need to decrease it a little bit more.
So please tell me what you reading was and don't accept the answer of "it's okay" from your doctor's office! Know your numbers so you know what you are dealing with.
