It's a 30 day snapshot of your sugar levels. If you keep it under control at or near 120 you'll reach an A1C of 6.0 or so. Counting carbs is very important, they're everywhere.

Yes in moderation, counting the carbs and taking enough insulin to counteract that intake.

Yes. I used to take a shot every meal with a Humalog pen and a long lasting shot at night. Now only one long lasting shot of Levemir about 34 units.

I take both pens now at lunch.
