I haven't been online much for the past couple of months or so. During that time I've been working very hard at trying to bring my BSLs back under control. When I had seen my endocrinologist several ago my A1c level was 9.6. I really couldn't figure out what was happening. I knew I didn't want to be on insulin, nor did i want the inevitable side effects of uncontrolled BSLs. So I started exercising more. I even walked during my breaks. I took my snacks as well as my lunches to work. I was careful how i prepared my food. I drank a lot of water. Anytime I ate or exercised I wrote it down in a diary. Last week I saw my endocrinologist. My A1c was 5.3. Also, because of my weight loss and other things, my doctor reduced my oral medication. Most of all, I feel so much better. I'll keep working at it. I can't stop now! Take care.
