Great! keep doing what you're doing and always remember that as long as you keep your A1C around this level to around 6.5% then you may not suffer diabetes complications. Land mark trials reveal that with every 1 % rise of A1C beyound this leveel will raise the risk of complications to your eyes, feet and kidneys by 35%. Keep also in mind that regular physical activity is your ally for life. Keep it up. Anyone can do this.

Well being in this community helps! I like having a "sounding board" and support. I saw a dietician and diabetes consultant. Changed my lifestyle…worked out almost every day, ate less sugar and prayed. Believe it or not prayer changes things. Thank you for all your insight!
