Since my next appointment is on August 28 at 3pm, I figured it would be a good idea to set some goals to meet by then. I have 33 days from now.
By August 28, I am going to try to get my A1C down into the 10% range. My A1C in May was 11.1%, so anything in the 10% range would be an improvement.
My big goal after that is to get my A1C down to 7% by December 31, 2014 (year’s end). That puts me at a little over 1% per month. I will accomplish this in several ways:
- Stay on top of correcting high blood sugars and giving accurate food boluses.
- Use the Dexcom (whenever I get it) to track my blood sugar patterns and trajectories.
- Use my secret weapon – namely,
GC Control from Melaleuca – whenever I am able to order it.
I think blogging about these goals and my progress will help me stay accountable and diligent. If you are a diabetic, I hope I can help you in some way. Likewise, I would appreciate help from you! Thank you for joining me on my journey!
