A1c

Hi everybody,

I have recently been getting a few messages about how to cheat on the A1c test. It has been ripping me apart because I get where you are coming from when you say you need to have a good A1c for your parents, but personally I will not feel good about myself or how you all are getting on with your diabetes if you cheat on it.

I am really sorry that I am not helping you out with your situation.

Anonymous said: to anon who wants to lower their hba1c: I was told the test relies heavily on the few weeks beforehand(like maybe 3-4 weeks).I don't know how close your appointment is, so...Just try to be really on top of measuring your bloodsugar, and regulate your insulin thereafter. I know sort of a way to "cheat" the test, but I'm a bit reluctant to post it, as it isn't "good". I would just recommend to try your best.

Thank you for your response!!

I feel the same way.. I don’t want to endorse bad habits if you know what i mean.

Anonymous said: Is there any way to lower an a1c fast? I'm supposed to have surgery and my mom is threatening to cancel it if my a1c isn't great. I've been slacking really badly the last month, so it's going to be a high 8 at best. How do I get it down (my mother is the least understanding person in the world).

Unfortunately no there is no way I know of to actually lower it without putting in the effort!
