what does a hba1c of 9.2 translate into in average blood sugar levels?
To convert an A1c to the new average mean blood glucose, use this formula:
eAG(mg/dl) = (28.7 X HbA1c) – 46.7
So the old method has an A1c of 6% at an average blood glucose of 135mg/Dl, and using the new formula will give you 126mg/DL, and a 7% A1c now equals a eAG of 154mg/DL instead of 170mg/DL.
So your average is 217 not 250. Not good at all. You are risking neuropathy , blindness ,kidney problems , heart disease. You need to up your meds. Start on a low glycemic index diet. Heres a website for a list of 2, 480 foods.

Nordic walking is defined as fitness walking with specially designed poles. It evolved from an off-season ski-training activity known as ski walking, hill bounding or ski striding to become a way of exercising year-round. Ski walking and hill bounding with poles has been practiced for decades as dry land training for competitive Nordic skiers. Ski coaches saw the success of world class cross country skiers who used ski poles in the summer for ski walking and hill bounding and it became a staple of off-season Nordic ski training. Hikers with knee pain discovered they could walk more powerfully with a pair of trekking poles, often eliminate or reduce hip, knee foot pain, and backpackers found relief from painful backs when using poles.
In 1997, a Finnish ski pole manufacturer Exel, introduced the trademarked Nordic Walker® poles, equipped with special Nordic walking straps, and “Nordic walking” became the accepted generic term for fitness walking with specially designed poles. The Nordic skiing savvy Northern Europeans quickly embraced this dry land hybrid of two of their favorite fitness activities — Nordic skiing and walking, and in a little more than a decade after its introduction in Europe, an estimated 10 million people around the globe have taken up fitness walking with specially designed poles as a regular form of exercise.
Nordic walking can be done year round in any climate and anywhere a person of any age or ability might otherwise walk without poles. It combines simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing. The result is a full-body walking workout that can burn significantly more calories without a change in perceived exertion or having to walk faster, due to the incorporation of many large core, and other upper-body muscles which comprise more than 90% of the body’s total muscle mass and do work against resistance with each stride. ‘Normal walking’ utilizes less than 70% of muscle mass with full impact on the joints of the legs and feet.
Nordic Ski Walking produces up to a 46% increase in energy consumption compared to walking without poles.
