    Diagnosed diabetic in Jan 19 with a HbA1c of 95,
    April 19 HbA1c was 50
    August 19 HbA1c 46 I know a lot of people have done better than me but tbh I'm over the moon. At first I struggled with food and then I've struggled with stress so I wasn't expecting a drop at all. My hard work is paying off and I'm not on any medication so I've done this all on my own.

    Well done Starfish 18. I've followed your waking posts so I've seen how hard you've worked for this. You deserve a wee celebration, that's for sure.

    I think you're mistaken. 95 to 46 in 8 months is amazing and there are not a lot of people that have done it! It's just that there are more people on this forum who have managed something like this than there are in the rest of the world.
    Congratulations!

    I think all who follow the morning bloods thread will have shared your pain over the past few weeks. I remember when you were getting in the 4s regularly and I thought I need a "jealous" emoji as my bloods were rubbish compared to yours. Then your bloods suddenly were in the 6s and 7s and you were trying all ways to get them down. You should be justly proud of your results as @Antje77 already said getting bloods down from 95 to 46 in 8 months is a great result. Don't need the emoji bag over your head this time this one will suit you better today.

    Very well done and congratulations.

    You're telling me but that feeling you have when you get a good blood result money cannot buy. Now just need to keep it that way or better. Hope your docs pleased.
