Am I making progress?

 It's so good to see where I'm going again!

Trends I've noticed:
I have pretty steady overnight numbers still.
I seem to drop between 12pm and 6pm, even without a lunch bolus, but that's okay because I tend to go up before 12pm when I give myself my Levemir shot.

I also was given this pretty nifty equation that seems to line up almost on par with the A1C chart I have for myself.  Here is the chart:

Here is the A1C Equation:
14 day average + 46.7 = Number / 28.7 = A1C

My current 14 day average is 200mg/dl. 

According to the equation, it would play out like this:

200 + 46.7 = 246.7 / 28.7 = 8.59, or 8.6%. 

According to my chart, an average BG of 200mg/dl is 8.6%. 

So now I know I can kind of use my 14 day average, as well as the Success Report in my Dexcom Software, to keep track of my A1C.  I can't wait to see if I've made any progress at my next appointment!  Only 5 more weeks to go!
