    Good for you!!! Yes, eating right and eating proper portions are the key! Last June 1, my A1c was 10.6 and the dr wanted to put me on insulin. I begged to let me do this myself for 6 months to see if I could turn it around. Currently my A1c is 6.0 and I have stopped all medications. My doctor and his staff is amazed and I think they are checking out Spark People to possibly mention to patients of what an awesome site this is and how much is helped me.

    I totally agree; eating right and eating healthy will help with not only controlling your blood glucose levels, but your blood pressure as well. Plus, if you are eating healthy and keeping track, you will lose the weight.

    I totally agree with this secret. Congratulations on your A1C!
