I'm kicking my diabetes to the curb ...My tests came in very good!
This is after the first 3 months of being a diagnosed diabetic ...
I now have HgA1C at 6.5, down from 8.3 from 3 months ago ...
Fasting a.m. blood glucose is now 107, down from a whopping 195 .. same time frame ...
My dose of generic Lipitor is now halved back to 10 mg; and my dose 850 mg of Metformin 2x a day does not increase
The numbers show diabetes in remission ... !
Uh, I refuse to lower my goal weight ... but after 3 years on Spark--most of them plateauing at about 20 pounds heavier than now (and spiking at 30 pounds heavier), I am happy to have the problem of not getting back to my selected goal weight, in the course of managing my blood sugar ...
Of course, the type of exercise I do had to radically change, along with my calorie and carb intake having to be kept way down ...
