    Perhaps you are being too hard on yourself my friend? Wish I could get down to 6.2.

    I probably am - I just can't seem to get my HBAC1 down below 50 - and the weight loss seems to have stuck!

    Sounds to me that you are doing really well especially as I notice that you are not on any medication! I was doing well with my results under control, even reduced my medication due to low carbing and increased exercise until this year when everything went pear shaped after a virus infection and it's affects . I've now had my medication increased to where it was before and have resumed my exercise but it's taking a while to get back to normal. My fasting bloods are in the 8+ range but moving slowly in the right direction so have to keep plodding and await my next HBA1c in July. If I were you I would be feeling proud!

    I empathize and sympathise Paula as I feel the same. Keep plodding my friend. It takes time but we will get there!

    I'd say that's not a bad reading if you have a cold. Can I suggest garlic capsules - good for catarrh and for killing the cold virus?
