In brief: Glycemic control

Your husband has an A1c outside of the target zone, which is now <7%.
The A1c is an estimate of glycemic control over a 3 mo period.An imperfect equation would estimate that his average blood sugar over this 3 month period is around 210mg/dl. Therefore, i would advise him to work with his physician to make the adjustments in his Insulin to achieve an A1c <7.0% as there are less overall complications.
