    My hba1c is now 7.6! My previous one was 14. I've worked to hard to get it down, but I am reaping the benefits! Better sleep, better skin, improved mental health, i am more focused, blood pressure is down, I've even lost a stone and half sticking to this low carb regime that I'd never of thought to try before joining this group. I'm so happy and feel great

    Well done the health benefits are huge, it’s always work in progress but coming so far it’s a brilliant turnaround.

    Well done - keep it up and you will hopefully achieve non diabetic levels. I've just had my third 5.5% in a row, feeling rather smug about it, all on diet alone although I have put some weight back on, unfortunately.

    Thanks - all the advice here helps so much, you helped me a couple of months ago, thank you again! Not sure about the weight gain (10 pounds - eek) but its not an easy time of year to manage that really. I'll see what happens in spring when I can be more active.
