I'm so excited, today my blood results came in, and my A1C is 6.8, 3 months ago it was 12.9, last month it dropped to 7.9 and now 6.8. I started counting my carbs again and watching what I ate.. I go too the Dr's Monday, I hope he reduces my Metformin…

Great job:) do you have any tips to get my a1c down. Mines 13.1 and I just don't know how to get it down.

I also have been coaching a friend who is on a pump, her A1C was 12.9 before I helped her and hers went down to 9.2, so she is so happy..

watch you carbs carefully. Here is how you do it…women are usually a total 9 carbs a day. 2 carbs for breakfast, 3 for lunch, 3 for dinner, 1 for snack. 15 grams of carbs =1 carb total
example if you look at english muffins, on the back label look for total carbs, it might say 28grams total per serving, and one serving is 2 pieces, that means it is a 2 carb item. you would divide 15 into 28, round it off 15 into 30 is 2, so this would be 2 carbs, plus one egg which is protein, one slice of cheese, so that would be your breakfast for the day…email me your address and I will send you my plan that I follow to give you and idea…jersey080@yahoo.com small

Congratulations on the excellent results! I know it's not easy reducing and counting all of the carbs we eat but the benefits are well worth it!
