Endo Visit (High Hemagoblin SP(?)

Apr 05, 2010 - 2 comments

Had my three month endocrinologist visit today along with finally finding out what my A1c levels were today. As it turns out I have an A1c level or 8.1. The doctor finally explained to me that A1c levels don't necessarily correspond to a person's blood sugar level. A person can have an average blood sugar of 140 like I did and have an 8.1c level, or have average high of 200 and have an 8.1 c level. He raised my Lantus level to 32u and he wants me to shoot for a new average blood sugar of 120. I just hope that with things picking up so fast that I can manage to make it. I also found out that I weigh 114lbs and I'm about 5.4.

I don't understand what your doctor means by saying that your A1c level of 8.1 does not reflect your average blood sugar values. (except I know that it takes some catching up to accurately represent what you are doing/showing now, as the test will still lag behind and show what was up more like a few weeks ago rather than right now)

I would appreciate your explaining average blood sugars that you get and them not fitting in with the A1c level. )i.e. if your blood sugars are usually around 200, or an average of such, then a number of 8.1 would not suggest such but much higher average blood sugars?)

Thanks, KATRIN

'The doctor finally explained to me that A1c levels don't necessarily correspond to a person's blood sugar level.'

Then what do they correspond to?
