i got my results from my first 'real' HgA1c. i say 'real' because the last one included the first month of diagnosis, and that was still good (7.8 down from like 15.)
5.6! can you believe it?! 5.6.
for those of you not-so-medical, the normal range for a person with diabetes is less than 7%. for all of you with beautifully functioning pancreases (would the plural actually be pancreai? i'm over-thinking my highschool latin here) the normal range is 5-6%. hey people-with- normal-pancreai, i'm just like you! ;)
yes, i started jumping up and down like a maniac when i got the results. i'm actually really glad that i was not at my doctor's office, because i probably would've kissed him. and ew, my endo is not so hot.
this means a lot for me: it means my body is adjusted, it means i'm doing more than ok, it means i can make healthy babies (!) it means i'm no longer a sugar-whacked mess.
my internist (the one i have a 'hug attraction' to) wrote me a little note calling me his little star again.
sigh. i love it when he calls me that. :)
