    Yup. Got my Hba1c down from 8.1 to 6.1 and it caused a whole host of issues in my eyes.

    Hello all, hope the wind hasn't attacked you or your gardens. All fine here including the T1, I have to say though that controlling the beast has been a tad harder these last few weeks. Lots of hypos and amazing dawn dumps, from a 5 to a 9 in 2 hrs.
    The good news is 3 blueberries arrived today, dormant of course. Is it blueberries or bluberries? Looking forward to warmer weather and getting things growing.

    Got my recent hba1c results today. Think I almost fell over in shock. Hybrid looping for 2 months now. Went from 78 at the start to 42 currently.

    Now my hubby has narrow angle glaucoma too, but he is getting cataracts, especially in the one eye. The other solve for narrow angle glaucoma is cataract surgery, other than the laser I had done. So he sees the surgeon in April to see if that's what he will just do.

    I've been glued to the TV. It's very sad.
