    HbA1c level - IFCC standardised
    September 2019 - 89
    January 2020 - 52


    Plasma fasting glucose level
    September 2019 - 14.2
    January 2019 - 7.2

    Wow! I did NOT expect to be that successful. Quite an achievement. I realize testing at home etc, isn't as accurate as of the Official Blood Test, but even so, on my just before breakfast, I got a JAZZ result of 8.3. Sooo... Can I say the error JAZZ Fasting numbers could have a SINGLE point knocked off? And no, I won't do it, don't worry ;) .

    Moving forwards then. Thanks for ALL the Support you have given me.

    Pretty decent improvements over 4 months well done you! Keep it up and you'll be back to "normal" in no time.

    @bulkbiker and @Rachox, thanks for the supportive feedback.

    Last night I got this by phone text from my GP:

    Your HbA1C came down to a target range of 52! This is fantastic news.
    It’s having her Patient-Centered motivation to go ahead contact me that makes me feel secure, and validation and reinforcement in my approach to my Diabetes.
