    I'm going to brag on myself! :D

    I wS diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in October. I do not want to take medication. I promised my doctor I'd whip myself into shape.

    Last Friday I had my checkup. I've lost 42 pounds, lowered my blood pressure, and . . . I am no longer classified as diabetic. My A1C was well into normal range. :thumb:

    The doctor said I also look much better and act a lot happier.

    Congrats Ima! I may be picking your brain as my doctor says my blood sugars are way too high as with my blood pressure. :( I'm on a low-glycemic diet right now -- I mean, I should be on a low-glycemic diet, lol.

    Congrats.

    My dad was diagnosed with Type 2 last April. His blood sugar has been in a good range, no spiking or anything, but his A1C keeps sticking at 6.1-6.2. He's not overweight, no high blood pressure, just family history of diabetes. A lot of it.

    bros, that is a good A1c for a diabetic. Mine has been running at 7, and my last test was 10. Oh my. I now have a coach and I feel like I am starting over with learning all about diabetes.
