    Is it wrong to be feeling a little smug with myself?
    I was diagnosed in March of this year, due to pancreatitus & pancreatic cyst. My HBA1C at the time was 119. I was told it would take about 12 months to get it down to a normal level of between 47-53. I've just had the results from my 2nd 3 monthly check & my HBA1C is 47.5. I've also managed to drop 2.5 st in weight

    Well if you get your HbA1c to "normal" levels then the prediction of T2 being a chronic progressive disease is proved false.. so their very raison d'etre is being challenged...

    Well done from one smug to another. I was diagnosed prediabetic in August, Hba1c was 44. Here I am three months later, one stone lighter and today my Hba1c was 36!

    Thank you for the advance warning. I'm still on a steap learning curve with diabetes & confess some of it is confusing
