A1C: Why is it important?

We took a good, hard look at A1C with our official One Drop Guide, but now it's time to dig a little deeper. Most people we talk to, ourselves included, are always striving for a lower number.

Why?

Because a lower A1C suggests that our current diabetes management plan is right on track. And we know that with better overall management comes better outcomes for us down the road.

How do we get there?

There are lots of ways to lower that glycated hemoglobin test result (if we're being technical), and we've tested just about all of them :)

It's up to us and our healthcare providers to determine which tactics work best at any given time; as our diabetes changes over time, so should our plans for tackling A1C.

With that in mind, these are just a few methods we've found extremely helpful in reaching those lab test goals: check blood sugar often - how to lower a1c - how to lower blood glucose - how to lower blood sugar - what is diabetic a1c - what is diabetic blood sugar - one drop diabeteseating low carb - what is low carb - Keto Diet - diabetic diet - how to lower blood sugar - how to lower blood glucose - best diet for diabetes - what is a1c - one drop diabetesworking out to lower a1c - working out to lower blood glucose - working out to lower blood sugar - what is a1c - how to lower a1c - what is a diabetic a1c - diabetic a1c - best diabetic workout - one drop diabetes - diabetes management - diabetes blood sugarhow to lower a1c - how to lower blood glucose - how to lower blood sugar - best way to lower a1c - what is a1c - what is diabetic a1c - what is diabetic blood sugar - sleep and diabetes - are sleep and diabetes related - one drop diabetes - type 1 diabetes - type 2 diabetes Additionally, we've seen incredible results by way of our mobile app: in our most recent study, people with both type one & type two diabetes were able to reduce A1C by 1.1% by using One Drop | Mobile. And if that's not enough, how's this user's report of a 7.2% to 5.9% reduction rate? 

We'd say pretty diabadass.

We also asked you, our One Drop Community, what you would be willing to do for a lower A1C.
