    My latest HbA1c blood test results arrived today.

    It's 37.8 ...it has gone up by 0.8 but I am still very happy considering the fact that I have been eating so much Chinese buffet, festive season, lack of exercise during the winter months and so much stress from work.

    Hurayyyy !!!!

    Hi @NewTD2,

    Great to see your post and congrats on your HbA1c. Huge achievement -- especially when your diet hasn't been quite as strict as before.

    Hurray!

    Great to hear
    Mines come back today too higher than I’d hoped at 51 but I know I’ve got to do better

    Hi @NewTD2 -- yes, I remember those times well when you first joined the forum. You've done really well since then.

    Can really empathize with having a stressful job -- makes it hard sometimes to find time to prepare (low-carb) food and to exercise.

    I am doing fine. I am on semester break right now, so things have calmed down a bit. Three and half years on low-carb and blood sugars are still normal -- so very happy about this.

    How has your doc reacted to your excellent HbA1c levels?

    Great result @NewTD2! :) I wouldn't be concerned about a slight rise of 0.8. You are doing well.

    So glad to hear from you and I am very grateful for your words of wisdom !

    My doctor told me, "oh you're absolutely fine now, just eat... you'll be alright!"

    She doesn't have a clue so I am just going to continue doing what I have been doing - low-carb, lots of healthy fats, exercise.
