This is why A1c is such a terrible metric for measuring blood sugar control.
These two charts show virtually the same A1c, but clearly have vastly different amounts of time in range. Even if your A1c was below 7%, would you feel good with that amount of variability? Would you feel in “control”?
I’m glad @dexcom took the step to stop giving estimated A1c and is focusing instead of % time in range in its Clarity reports.
Huge thanks to Dr. Anne Peters at the USC Westside Center for Diabetes for these slides and, more importantly, her leadership and expertise in the Beyond A1c movement. Also for singlehandedly keeping me alive for the last 6 years.
