Dr Edelman is a US endocrinologist & diabetologist with T1. He makes amusing videos about living with T1 and helps explain the science behind recent research. In this short video he discuss recent findings, reported in a leading diabeted journal, about the effect of HbA1c on survival rates. An amusing and positive message.

Positive video that explains that an HbA1c below 8.5% or so results in a mortality rate that is no worse than the population normal while making it clear that a lower A1c results in fewer complications, or a "longer, healthier life".
