So, what’s the best number for a diabetic regarding HbA1c ? That’s a no brainer, the same number as a non diabetic. And that number is a very, very long way, from the NICE guidelines 7.5 which equate in old money to around 9 mmol/l, twice the number of a healthy non diabetic. Clearly the NICE guideline HbA1c recommendation is not a place a well controlled diabetic wants to be. Tragically, the majority of diabetics, never get close, to the almost complication guaranteeing, NICE guidelines.
As I said earlier, Sid is consistent. I am sure he gives many experienced and in control diabetics a chuckle. No one in their right mind would follow Sid’s ludicrous diet, based on 16 grams of corn flakes, bread, scones, spuds and chocolate digestives. But each to their own. I like Sid, every forum needs a good court jester. After Kenny boy, Sid is doing a great job. The big question is, how much confusing information is the ex Ken clique giving to the newly diagnosed and long term out of control ? And, is Sid a bit of a buffoon, or is someone pulling his strings.
