Hi all I went to the doctor and was told that my a1c went down from a 10.5 to 8.2 in three months. This was good news to me considering how high It has been for the last 2 years. All of my numbers were good. However they still increased my Insulin to 90cc twice daily and for me to continue taking Actos 30mgs dalily. I just wanted to share this with everyone. Hoping that everyone is having a bless day..

Great news, we are all very, very proud of you!
Don't stop now, just think of all of the benefits that come with reducing your A1c as little as 1 point.

For every 1% reduction in A1c, the risk of developing eye, kidney and nerve disease is reduced by 40%.
Research shows that good blood sugar control does lower their risk of developing major related health problems including heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye disease, nerve damage, amputations and circulation problems.

Wow!
