each of us is different for sure..my endo followed the american diabetes and just recently it has been found that maintaining too strict a control can lead to death as the body does not store enough to maintain life when it drops out and away you go..and then you have those who develop chronic kidney disease in spite of the control and then your diet becomes low phosphorous, low sodium, low potassium and low protein so off you go having only a real choice of carbs and fats but you find you can do it..and then along comes autonomic neuropathy because for some reason no matter how hard you try that happens also another wonderful thing caused by diabetes (if you live long enough lol) and that brings you seizures and unreliable drop outs and low blood pressures and no guarantees and you deal with it and the range for fasting blood sugars goes up from 80 to 120 to 120 to 150 and the drops are not as hard although they are still there bottom line for me at present is 95 and from there it falls fast this from someone who used to maintain 80 to 90 always and the blood pressure well i'm off all the doses of bp meds except for one and can barely hold it even with the pacemaker..and there are no guarantees for sure..so each of us is different but my endo is always in my corner and always trying to figure out what we can do next and has his residents workiing diligently on the problem for new ideas..and life has become rather uncertain but i;m ready for whatever and he's in there with me wholeheartedly the lady mary

I guess I need to buy an iron because this has thrown a whole new wrinkle in my thought processes. Can you direct me to the AE information? I can remember when the ADA did not give carb counting any credibility. Hmmm.

My regular doctor and endo have agreed with me for years; the ADD is woefully out of date.
We all agree that for me, a very low-carb approach to food works best. I wear an insulin pump and self-adjust my insulin and basals. My doctors are part of my team, with me being the one who's making the decisions. I engage them when I need advice.

January 2015: This is the year I'll hit my goal. I've gotten close but this will be the year I see that magic number on the scale. No shame, no self-loathing; only love for this one body I've got.
This change is fairly recent...TheCollage of Endocrinologis have just tightened up their guideline numbers. There isn't so much difference as to affect your treatment by Dr or self care. It just affects whether you are in range of their guidline numbers. The Endo crinologist demand better tighter control to stay within their range. The ADA still using the track that everyone used for years. But if you are staying under an A1c of 7. with FBG in control that's what you aim for. Really doesn't matter too much which scale your Dr. follows...either ADA or CE...His goal is to help educate and guide you to better numbers. If you can have numbers that consitantly fall within ADA track for FBG and after meals, that is great...if your numbers fall within CAE 's track that is SUPER! Good luck...
