A1c Three-peat

Scott Benner

ArdensDay_A1c.JPG

One year ago, Arden sat in my car after her endocrinologist appointment and asked me what she could do to lower her A1c. At that moment, her A1c was 7.4 - it had been a full point higher just one year prior. Three months later, we returned to see if the adjustments that we made had any effect and that's the day we saw the first result under 7.

Three months after that, Arden's A1c was 6.7, and then yesterday... it was 6.7 again.

That's three consecutive A1c results under 7 - I'm calling that a three-peat. 

There are many ways to celebrate an A1c while you wait for you NP to come into the room, on this day Arden and I choose VolleyGlove. Even though we haven't played in quite some time, you will see in this video that our skills remain intact. #sochi?

I'm always looking for ways to make Endo day less of a drag. VolleyGlove is a time-honored favorite.
