1. We are working really hard, REALLY hard, to bring our daughter’s A1C under 7.0. I can’t imagine 6.5. It would be great, and we strive for it, but a goal of 6.5 feels completely impossible now. You are absolutely right about adapting an attitude of striving for better but being realistic about what’s achievable, based on individual circumstances.

  2. I think the goal that makes sense IS the same for everyone: as close to a non-diabetic normal A1c as possible without too many hypos. For some (no one I know!) that could be a 5. For others that might be an 8.
