    I have not posted anything on here for a while but I had my quarterly HBA1C test result on friday and had to tell the world about the results.

    I was diagnosed on November 7th with an HBA1C level of 13.9.

    Since then I have kept to a low carb diet and lost lots of weight. My new HBA1C level is 6.

    Yessssssssss 6

    Thank you Guys. I cant believe how much better I feel. I was still worrying though that my results may have come back less positive and how I would have felt after putting so much effort in.

    Hi Red well done fantastic achievement! I dont know if you test your blood glucose levels but for me it has been a great help as I feel I would have crept back up to high levels without noticing it until its too late. Keep strong Montana

    Hi

    What is different between Feb and October? Did you change what you eat? How are you feeling?
