I got mine done today, it was 9.8 I was in shock, my morning readings are good always around 100's and the last month especially I had to lower insulin units because I would wake up in the 60's, I will have a lab test result in a week where blood was drawn, today it was done at a research clinic where they only pricked my finger, so I will wait for the other ones to have a better picture, the only consolation in all this is that my previous one was above 11 and I've taken action in… read more

Hi everyone, keep up the good work and keep fighting...everyday will be a little different. I was diagnosed May 2018, with A1C of 13.....my doctor was floored at such a high reading.

Since that time, I have changed my eating habits, started working out and generally just being more active. As of my last reading, December, 2018, I'm @ 5.9. It has not been easy, but I feel so much better. Please do not discouraged if you are not where you want to be right now; just know you will get there as long as you keep working at it.
I take 15ml of apple cider vinegar at bedtime. Was Told it should help my count.
