    I had some bad news, my hba1c was 118 and cholesterol was 9.4 just two months ago. I had another blood test done and my new hba1c is now 76 and cholesterol is 4.56 in just 2 small months. I’m in shock and can’t believe it

    Congrats.
    Even more amazing when you consider that the A1c is a 3 month average so you've a bad month in your latest follow up.
    Keep up the great work
