Tom had a hba1c of 8.9 and Christopher's was up to 7.0.
A non diabetic person generally has a hba1c of 5 so both boys were a bit high.
Tom really could get much better results since he is on the pump but he often will eat and not give himself insulin or tell me about it. It can be very frustrating and he doesn't really seem to realize just how this can affect his health in the future.
I told his endo that he tends to have really good days or really bad days. The days that he has high sugars, they are really high all day. The days that he has good sugars, he has really good sugars all day.
Christopher is still in his honeymoon phase of type one diabetes. This is the huge advantage of us finding out so early that he has it. The trend is children that start on insulin have a longer honeymoon phase. We are hoping Christopher will have a long term one.
