Great news everyone! Having my gallbladder removed in December of 2011, after a miserable falied depressed year with type 2, my A1c was 9.8 at the time of surgery, my liver enzymes were way up and heading for cerrhosis (sp?)
of the liver. got connected with a diabetic educator in jan. of 2012 for 3 months. Sept. 2012 full knee replacement, @ that time of surgery A1c was 6.4. taking herbs and supplements, on 4 diabetic meds, and today my new A1c reading is …drumroll please… 5.6 !!! ta-da!
I am so excited and thirlled. we also started walking a mile every other day and sedentary bike on other day. life is good.
Thanks so much for allowing me to share…what works for one may not work for others…

good for you Tammy! you will probably see inches before pounds. I too, have not loss the weight but my belly isnt as full looking anymore. figure at least 5 inches lost there.
good to have a nutritionist, wish I could have one all the time. take in all you can from her, also seek out herbs and supplements such as bitter melon and cinnamon.
maybe you can keep sharing as you learn? good luck…Lauri

This is great news. I'm so glad to hear that you are doing so well and have come so far. 5.6 is something that you should be very proud of indeed!
