Hi all!!

It's been 4 months since my diagnosis of type 2. Two weeks ago I had labs and got my results today. So, my doctor's actual words were "you are not diabetic!" I initially had an A1C of 6.7. Today, 5.6! No medication…just change of diet really. I still have weight to lose so I know I'm not completely out of the woods. should I refrain from rejoicing just yet? Follow up in 3-6 months

I think that is great, I have predisone induced diabetes and my numbers spike in the afternoon due to the predisone but I need to lose weight not only for diabetes but for my health but I look at the carbs and sugars and I haven't noticed my numbers gone down and I thought I was doing great, wrong… what am I doing wrong?

Great news:) but be mindful of what you eat and exercise, I too got my readings down for yrs I was doing great , then slowly I started taking chances, and before I knew it my BS was up again, I'm in process of getting back on course, it's getting better as the wks pass, I hope to get it back down to normal readings, crossing fingers and praying, and some hard work will hopefully get me their:) Great to hear when someone is doing good:) Be proud of your accomplishments .

Great news! I was Dx in 2010 with type2. My A1c at that time was 7.1 with a 3 month follow-up of 6.9 . My last three A1c's were 5.4 , 5.4 , and 5.5 . If I saw a new Dr today and he didn't know my history I would be told that I too am not diabetic. Unfortuntately, I am and always will be a diabetic. If I returned to the eating habits and little exercise I would quickly see my numbers go right back up. Sorry, there are no cures. There is management and control. Keep up the things you have done so far and you will stay in this great range. Congrats!!

That's great to hear. I agree that you have to maintain a healthy diet and exercise. That way you will be able to keep it under control. I hope to have these same results soon. Good job!

Type two, for the most part, is very treatable!! Keep eating healthy and exercising! It sounds like you are on a good road to recovery!! Don't get cocky with it, but be proud an thankful you're so lucky!!
