where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hi am a type 1 for 12 years ... My Hba1c has always been between 7.8 -9.2. I have no problems with my kidney,eyes cholesterol and have never been out of the heathy realm for all my blood tests if my Hba1c high all the time should I possibly have symptoms of problems by now?

Every T1 is different. It really just depends on the individual. I would recommend you speak with your doctor about ways you might be able to lower your A1C to prevent future complications. They should be able to suggest ways for you to become more in control of your diabetes. :)

Thanks . It's really frustrating as up to a year ago I ran everyday ate sensibly and still I got the same results ... I really feel it's a failure when it higher than it should be .

****try reading Think Like A Pacreas--it helped me lower my a1c and I've been t1 for almost 30 years. On a side note my a1c was in that same range for most of my life (higher even when I was a kid) and I do not have any complications either (knock on wood)

****I'm on Lantus x1 daily and humalog at meals ..****thank you I will take your advice And it's good to hear that you don't have ant complications either .. I have DR BRENSTEIN books and I tried his diet and it reduced my diet marginally but it was pretty hard to stay on !
