Last year, diaTribe published this article about using some other glucose measures along with A1C to measure diabetes outcomes. https://diatribe.org/beyonda1c
A year later, this topic is picking up steam. There has been a lot of discussion lately about A1C vs Time In Range (or how much time we spend at our blood sugar goal, how much time higher, and how much time lower).
What are your thoughts? Which measure is more important to you? Which measures does your health care team discuss with you?
My endo discusses both A1C and Time In Range, but he is more concerned with the latter. I have a low A1C number, and he is concerned that I spend too much time with low blood sugars. It's something we're working to solve - even at the cost of bringing my A1C up a bit.
