Feeling really good about the A1c result I picked up today. Since 3 months ago, it has come down from 8.5 to 6.9!! Know I still need to go lower but was shocked that it had come down that much. Told the Doc about this Forum and all the info / tips and support I was picking up…i.e. Glucocil and Glucosolve, Mediteranean Diet, etc. You all have been a great help to this Newbie learning how to live with Diabetes. My BS numbers are still in flux (can't always understand why) but it has been a fairly steady downward path since I've been watching it. Lowest reading was an 88 but have had several in the low 90s. Anytime it starts heading for 200, I start walking, drinking liquids and eating Brocolli. Have lost 11 lbs but seem to have hit another plateau. Another question: some of these links don't seem to work. Is DC maintenance happening?
