    Hi all!

    Just back from seeing my GP this morning and I am stoked to say that my Hbac1 has dropped from a whopping 10.7 when diagnosed to a fabulous 6.6!! I am so thrilled with this result and could not wait to share with you all..

    I would love to get a result in the 5's one day but will see how I go! Oh and my blood pressure is good at 120/70..so all in all a great visit with my doc and no need to see him until Oct!

    I just wanted to share as I am so happy

    Warm regards

    Sandra

    Hello Sandra,

    Well done with HbA1C... Its a good feeling when you get news like that from doctors, but now you just need to keep up the good work and get into the 5% Club.

    I only recently got into the 5% Club, with a 5.7%, so I am personally looking for a <5.4% the next time around.

    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers
