i have to eat my words; my A1C improved!
A1C= average blood sugar over the past 2-3 months
although i was expecting a 7.2 or a 7.3, i did feel like my glucose values were getting better the last few weeks on the study pump. and they apparently were.
apart from a 5.9 which i swear was an undeserved lab error, 6.6 is my lowest A1C ever.
in any case, end of study. i turned in the study pump last week, and happily (yes, happily!) hooked myself back up to my omnipod and dexcom. going from tubed to tubeless and having the ability to correct below 150 and give manual boluses at my whim make me very happy. i'm challenging myself now to achieve a 6.6 (or better) A1C with my omipod and dexcom. i think i can do it!
time will tell if i start to miss the study pump.
any comments or questions, let me know.
signing off for now-- erin
