This Is Why We Do It

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

In March I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and went veg then vegan over the next few months.

I had a BMI of 29.9. It is now 19.5.

My A1C (3 month average glucose level which should be below 5.8) was 10.0. I have had bloodwork done a couple of times since then, most recently yesterday. When the second A1C was done in June I was on two medications for blood sugar control and was at 6.6. Now I am on nothing and it is 5.6.

Thanks to everyone here who has supported me as I do this and, to those who are wondering why they are doing it, I hope this helps.
