    After initially doing really well at diagnosis following LCHF diet & testing I got complacent & fell off the wagon which along with steroids resulted in my ending up in A&E with levels of 33+ in January.

    Saw GP & my Hba1c was 91. Had a repeat done after 6 weeks.
    Anyway I've just had a text from the GP who specialises in Diabetes saying my Hba1c is now 64 'superb' & 'well done'
    He recommends that I have another one in another 6 weeks. (Then I will probably leave it 4-6 months.)
    Really good positive text. (Might ring up to order some more test strips whilst he remembers my name!!)
    Feeling great!!

    O & I've also lost 10kg!!
    Thanks to everyone for their support!!!

    Brilliant well done! :) I only get nagging texts from my GP telling me my HbA1c is overdue.

    Great reductions in blood sugars and weight @Sunny, well done! :) And it's great that the GP who specialises in diabetes takes such an encouraging attitude. Does he know you are doing LCHF and if he does what is his views on that?

    You are lucky to get those. My GP leaves it to me to remember when I am due to have blood tests and make the appointment.

    If the sun shines at the outside and the wind is calmly.., my feelings come to be rather free and happy so when all the stress has been loosen on me, my diabetic results seem wonderful... All is that... If every time i can live on this format, i don't need another way and anything. To be quiet with your soul is enough, for the control your diabetes.
