My Sweet Katie
Today is a pretty big day. Katie has her first a1c test since her Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis in April. What’s an a1c? who knows. I don’t even know off the top of my head what it stands for. But basically it tells us how we have been managing Katie’s blood sugar. It’s just a number, but it will give a picture to how our management has been.
If you want to read more about what the A1C is, here is a link to the American Diabetes Association explanation.
So Katie’s first A1C was 12. A good number for us would be 8 but 5-7 would be awesome. I wonder how long it takes to get the results.
Katie is so amazing! She helped me out with a photo shoot I did for Sweet Petunia Clothing last week.
Whatever her A1C, I’m so proud of all of us. We have worked really hard every day and I hope today will be a little victory in this journey.
Question for my diabetes friends, do you remember your first A1C test? Any advice? 🙂
