  Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Tight Control

Tight Control from 2002

  1. Is this level of control sufficient? Am I risking a higher possibility of complications by not maintaining tight control? (22 Oct 2002)
  2. Why would doctors not try to bring people to normal A1c levels? (21 Oct 2002)
  3. Are there any ongoing studies that look at people who have had diabetes for more than 15 years with A1cs in the normal range for that period for time? (14 Aug 2002)
  4. I am baffled by the ADA recommendation that an A1c should be less than 1% above the upper limit of normal for the lab performing the test. (8 Mar 2002)
  5. At what age does "tight" -- rather than just "good" -- control become imperative for children with diabetes? (27 Feb 2002)
  6. Is it unrealistic for my father to aim for an A1c under 7.0%? (27 Feb 2002)
  7. I think that, if you can maintain a mean blood sugar level near normal over your entire life with diabetes, you will not experience any complications and you will live a normal long life. (26 Feb 2002)
  8. My A1c is 6.9% and although I am doing 30 minutes walk and diet, nothing changes. (10 Feb 2002)
  9. My last A1c was 6.3%. What is the target that is suggested for people with type 1 diabetes? (9 Feb 2002)
