    Results are in, I've literally just left the doctors office with a hba1c result of 58 down from 103 April 2019. I actually cried, I'm so happy. I know I still have a way to go but I am shocked, I really wasn't expecting that.
    Thankyou to everyone for support/help/advice etc. Hope everyone is well!

    I cried when I got the next HbA1c after my first damning diabetic one, and it was just barely in the prediabetic range. It is indeed a crying-with-joy occasion, if ever there was one. Well done!!!
