Here's another problem: socks seem to be made for wide feet. I do not like the way the excess fabric bunches up inside my shoes. Does anyone know of decent socks that are made for narrow feet? I would really appreciate the info!
Diane, I am (was) a medical professional. There is no difference between Hb A1c and Hgb A1c. Both refer to hemoglobin A1c. Also a Hgb level of 12.2 should not have an adverse effect on the results. The methods have a built-in algorithm to account for borderline levels, both marginally high, and marginally low...as 12.2 is.
Most of us don't "count" blood sugars...we test the level, in milligrams per 100 mL (deciliter). A blood "count" is exactly that: you count the number of red and/or white cells in a given volume of whole blood.
brunosbud, most tests...if not all...have built-in algorithims to account for moderate deviations from the normal range of RBC counts. Unless the patient is extremely low...or high...the results should not be clinically affected.
Digm70, I wasn't "out" for any one of my three cataract surgeries (had to have the first lens removed, had reacted to the material it was made of, and my eye encapsulated it). I might have snuck in a 5 mg Valium for the first one, but found that the local drops did a fantastic job. Don't worry, it's a piece of diabetic-friendly cake!
