    Today 7.5% (58.5) down from 8.0% (63.9) in April. Still not great but a little more on track. Lowest since diagnosis was 7.0% (53), but at expense of too many severe hypos. Still aiming for balanced < 7.0%.

    On plus side lipids, kidney and liver panels are all OK. Next month eye and neuropathy checks. Fingers crossed!

    3 months on the pump, and mine has come down to 5.8%, with very few hypos. Absolutely delighted with it. The pump is hard work but the flexibility it provides is fantastic. Beats 21 years of MDI hands down.

    I have just got mine back from drs and am over the moon. It's 65, down from 85 6 months ago and 105 6 months before that. It's all due to a much more LCHF diet than I ever used to. I always had very brittle control and am sooo happy that I am getting better. Next aim is 50. Then I will be happy. I'll never be one of the amazing ones but I'll settle for good

    Fasting BG at 8 am is always above 7. Two hours after lunch with reasonable food intake it is quite good, at around 4.5. Don't know the reason why.

    78 or 9.3% four weeks ago and hoping it'll be dropping .. LCHF and exx. Started out at 118 / 13% in June when diagnosed.

    It's so lovely every time it goes down!

    Hoping to get to 42 / 6%.

    LADA, 55, LCHF and exercise, no meds for now.

    T2 diagnosed Jan 2013.

    Last HbA1c 5 August - 44

    Though a pretty good result, I'm not happy as my last two bi-annual reads were 40.

    My weight has gone up by about 10lbs in eight months. My waking reads are also on the rise. I need to crack down on this now before I'm back up to 16.5 stone and very unhealthy!

    Mine has dropped from 59% to 39% in 3 months.
    I no longer eat bread/pasta or rice and I'm very strict on chocolate sweets and bakery.

    Don't know how long I can maintain this level of self control but at leases I've kept myself off diabetic medication for now.

    I've been given statin but don't want to stay on them if I can reduce my cholesterol by diet.

    I know that I will need drugs one day and I have no issue with those who are prescribed but I have personal reasons why I don't want to take them.

    just had mine done. it's gone from 54 to 47. I am so pleased. I've already forgotten what that is in "old money" and am trying, after 33 years, to just go with this new counting.

    New personal best at 5.6 (38) - down from 5.9 (41) :)

    Having been stuck around 5.9-6.0 for the last couple of years, I think this is down to Tresiba
