A1C 8.5 DOC UNCONCERNED
by RODNEY BRAGGS
I have type two diabetes and taking Glipizide 10 mg twice daily for 5 years.
My A1C over last 6 months has been increasing from 6.9 to 7.5 and now is 8.5 and my Doctor does not seem to be concerned and refuses to do anything different to lower it.
Should I be concerned or am I still in a safe margin? I am 69 yrs of age and a little worried perhaps for no reason.
Thanks for any reply
