Reduce low quality carbs and refined starches like white rice and anything made with white flour, including white bread and pasta Avoid food which are high in glycemic index. Choose lean proteins, including skinless chicken and turkey, fish and shellfish instead of meats Keep a good distance from junkies.

    A1C test

    I went to my Docter and my a1c was 5.1 I thought that was good but she told me it not good at all , she said I need to stay between 5.5 and 6.0 so now I feel lost what is good or bad I can not tell when I am high or low on my blood sugar unless I test

    GREAT discussion. I have run the gamut from 4.0 to 11.0 and after much expermentation with insulin levels realized I felt the best around 6.5. At that setting I was experiencing fewer highs and lows and was more consistant in my BG's. The A1C is a great thermomater on how your overall BG's are doing but it just one more tool in your "arsenal of care" as my Endo calls it. You get a more accurate reading of BG's with your daily readings from your meter and food/exercise log.

    You tend to have suh frightening lows that I can't imagine your A1c ever being that high. I'm hoping your upcoming one will be a good one!
