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. Had I not gone in for another illness, bad case of the flu, I might have suffered a lot more. 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.
