Back to Ask the Diabetes Team A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c - 2013

A1c, Glycohemoglobin, HgbA1c from 2013

  1. A year ago, my daughter's A1c was 9.6. She struggled to keep from gaining weight. Now, her A1c is 7.6 and she has lost weight. Can consistent highs prevent weight loss even when on a low calorie/low carbohydrate diet? (19 Nov 2013)
  2. My teenaged daughter's A1c is its highest. She often forgets to bolus and grazes a lot. Do all teens rebel against diabetes? How can I help her? (18 Jun 2013)
  3. My daughter's A1c was 9%, the highest it's ever been. She has school related stress, mood swings, fatigue. Her face is a bit puffy and she doesn't feel "right." What do you recommend we do? (20 Mar 2013)
  4. My daughter's diabetes team is pleased with her A1c. They want me to correct her to 100 mg/dl [5.6 mmol/L] at night, but I am not comfortable with this. Am I being unreasonable? (6 Feb 2013)
  5. Our primary physician and I are concerned about my young daughter's elevated A1cs while the endocrinologist is not. What do you recommend? Should I seek a second opinion? (9 Jan 2013)
