Test results

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 431

I am still feeling shocked by my results today - Hba1c reduced to 47, from 91 - I was thinking perhaps something in the 60s - and in such a short time. I thought it was 80 days but I think it might be 78 - not that it matters - but I am sure that the results were to a large extent due to my having a meter so I could check after meals and then act on the results to maintain a low spike.
Of course I need to continue to eat low carb - but that is no hardship really - I hope that I will be able to eat more fruit eventually, but that would be fairly low carb - the greatest temptation will be the apples from my trees later this year, if it is a good year. Perhaps I should get an apple crusher and turn them all into cider rather than see them go to waste. The birds appreciate the windfalls, but in a good year there can be hundreds of apples on each tree.

The main problem at the moment is that I have almost nothing to wear. I will have to get busy and make myself a few things to tide me over until my weight stabilises.
