A1C chart on this page has A1C to BS conversion chart and calculator using the DCCT formula. The hemoglobin A1C result is an important value for long-term glucose monitoring; about three months mean value of glucose level. DCCT (The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial) Formula: Below is the a1c chart to show a relation between A1C and BS equivalent.

This A1C chart is based on the DCCT formula, a randomized clinical trial designed to compare intensive and conventional therapies and their relative effects on the development and progression of diabetic complications in patients with type 1. Seven-point capillary blood-glucose profiles (pre-meal, post-meal, and bedtime) obtained in the DCCT were analyzed to define the relationship between HbA1c and BG. You would take these meal time insulins 10-15 minutes prior to eating, if you are going to skip a meal you would skip your insulin dose for that meal. Converting A1C to equivalent blood-glucose level (as shown by the glucometer) can be easier interpreting the result. He recommends DCCT's formula to convert A1C to BS than the formula by ADAG recommended by ADA.

Meal time insulin would be used in combination with long acting insulins Levemir or Lantus.
Short Acting insulin regular Humulin or Novolin, would be taken 30 minutes prior to meals, and last for about 5 to 8 hours.
