I successfully managed to bring down my A1C to below 6. I was diagnosed at 8+. It was only diet and exercise, no medication. And of course, i regularly monitored my parameters like blood glucose, the calories and carbs i am taking in. I used a software at www.friendofdiabetic.com.
I religiously logged my readings here and was able to see where i was going.
within 6 months, I am down to 6 at A1C. No medication. And bonus ! I lost about 20+ pounds. Time for a wardrobe change.
