    @Wen0917 You've done remarkably well getting your numbers down then! With numbers like that you should have your next HBA1C down pretty well but I concur with the others to just keep an eye out for other things. Would rather you not have any struggles down the line.

    @Wen0917 - When you say you live in an Asian country, are you of Asian heritage? If that is the case, the usual European views of BMI aren't quite in play. It is usually considered those of Asian heritage need to be at a slightly lower BMI, although if I am totally candid, I don't know what that range would be.

    Earlier this year, I spent a couple of months in Thailand, and because I was a bit concerned about my eating patterns - eating in lots of restaurants and so on, so no control over sugars added, whilst understanding the sweet, sour, salt and spice combinations.

    Actually, I had my best ever HbA1c score there. All I had done was pass on noodle dishes, avoind the sweet and sour dishes (not really to my taste anyway) and not order rice. Of ourse, to a local bystander, my meals sometimes looked a bit odd, but they were always delicious.

    Good luck with it all
