Hi, the continuous blood sugar monitoring does closely estimate A1c so I believe mine will be below 7 for the first time in a long time. It offered great feedback regarding what foods really made things spike my sugars. Chips and french fries, donuts, are the worst to eat as they are a combined fat and carbo with no fiber. Ive been able to find snack foods that satisfy without raising blood sugars. One is Detour bars I buy at Costco (see attached pic). I also go for salty peanuts or apple with a nut butter such as almond. I also read somewhere that drinking water will help lower sugars so am trying to stay hydrated. Finally if you can exercise before or after your dinner that helps a ton. Even a 20 mins walk will lower my sugars amazingly into the normal range!!!
