    I've often wondered...

    Do you notice every question asked on this board never pays reference to their family... moms, dads, spouse, sons, daughters, grandkids, nephews, nieces, etc? Do you notice, nobody ever says, "I wish to learn how to deal with my diabetes so, that way, I can 'show' my children how to deal with this (condition) since it has very strong, family correlation."

    A1C levels in seniors

    DOB: 06-18-I940 I have been taking 1500 mg of Metformin daily & my recent a1c levels are 5.5! Today my physician told me it is too low and wants it to be around 7! I also like Metformin for its anticancer & longevity claims. We decided to lower the dosage to 500 mg daily. 1. What is ideal level of a1c for my age group? 2.
