I understand what you're saying, but I would suggest that there needn't be concern over any single BG test.
Your A1C will give a much better picture of the 'crystalized content' of your blood, i.e., the stuff that will hurt your organs. From a long-term health perspective any single high or low will not affect your heart, eyes, other organs, etc., but multiple high A1Cs over an extended period of time would indicate that damage may be occuring.
I think we're saying the same thing here, but what is important to know is that the outcome of your BG tests don't have a direct correlation to your A1C. For example, if you're testing 30 mins after you eat and always getting high results, you may still end up with a low A1C. Likewise, you might be testing before you eat and seeing lots of lows, then over-carbing and getting higher A1Cs.
It's all a balance, which you seem to be well aware of!
Highs and lows are important, but for a different reason: it's how you feel. You don't want to be passing out or feeling sluggish or irritable, you want to be a productive happy individual with lots of energy. That's what the BG tests are good for, and your endo should know the difference.
Because a T1s body doesn't produce insulin, you're going to spike. Your doctor shouldn't be criticizing you simply because of the timing of your tests. If you learn your body well enough and time it right you could get perfect BG scores for three months straight and still end up with an A1C of 10.
Again, I think we're saying the same thing, but just in a different way. As long as you feel good and you can manage the highs and lows, it doesn't really matter how you end up with a good A1C, just as long as you get there.
Thanks again for coming back to explain your side...I completely understand your concerns, I was actually meaning more that I didn't get why the endo was criticizing a good A1C!
