Some old crotchety guy steps up to the counter today and asks, “I hear there’s a new medication to lower my AC1. What is it?”
“We have lots of medications to lower your blood sugar. They require a prescription though.”
“It’s something new for AC1!” he says, getting angry. “I just want to lower my AC1 now!”
Why do old people get so angry so quickly in Snootyville?
“A1C is an indicator of your blood sugar over the past three months. I don’t think you’re understanding what that is.”
“But I saw it on TV!” he says.
“Well, go see your doctor and they’ll draw some blood and we'll go from there.”

Man walks away.
