Weekly Stats - Awesome Improvement!

I'm just so excited I had to share!  (Have I declared my love for the Dexcom Studio software yet?  I don't know what I'd do without this device, or this data!  This is huge to me!)

Again, the blue line is this week, red line is last week.

Last week, May 24 - 30, my average BG was 150.
This week, May 31 - June 6, my average BG was 110.

Last week, I was 54% in target (and 43% high).
This week, I was 90% in target (and 8% high).

My target range is currently set at 65 - 150, though I try to correct when I see that I'm up around 130.  Technically, since 83 mg/dl is my target number, I correct for every 50 mg/dl my BG is over that number, so at 133 mg/dl, I correct with 1 unit of Apidra.
In case you didn't know, 140 mg/dl is the threshold of when nerve damage begins.
 My blood sugars the past week:

I've found that 3 units of Levemir 3 times a day doesn't seem to be enough.  June 3rd, the day I tried it, I seemed to run higher than the days I tried 5 units 3 times a day.  I've been sticking with 5 units and I've seen great success!

Also, my numbers at noon and midnight have evened out and I no longer have those weird rises in my blood sugar.  I'm definitely loving this 3 injection Levemir cycle, even if it means I have to set an alarm at 8am for my shot. 

So, where does this put me in terms of A1C?  Well, since my test will be taken the beginning of July, it will only count the 3 months before that, so June, May, and April.  Currently, my Dexcom Studio software is saying that my quarterly BG average is around 145, so that puts me at:
an Endo A1C of 6.7%
a Dr. Bernstein A1C of 6.2%.

Remember my last A1C in March?
8.3% (192 mg/dl)
7.6% (193 mg/dl).

That's 47 mg/dl lower and a 1.6 / 1.4 point decrease in my A1C!

I'm hoping to keep these good numbers going from now on and hopefully my real A1C when it's tested will be even better than these figures!  What do you think my A1C will be in a month?
