My new endo just called..I was surprised it was him…he said his nurse usually calls..but he said my A1C was 5.9…nice!!!..But then he said he didn't believe that was an accurate measure of how I am currently managing my diabetes,,,he said the recent changes (in the last month) I have made to my diet will show up better on the next one…and he asked me to come back in 6 weeks to take another…he is expecting it to be lower…cross your finger… by the way my new endso is NOT AT ALL old school and is shit giggly happy with my atkins approach to managing my diabetes..

How refreshing to meet a doctor who is open minded. That is fantastic you little control freak! LOL. You are doing great and I bet he is thrilled to have someone as pro-active in their management as you are.

yeah he was really cool…and he actually sent me an email asking if I would speak at one of his diabetes education classes in the middle of Feb…he is really trying to convince his older patients to go lower carb…and well I am an attention whore and haven't given a workshop on anything since leaving NY…so hell yeah!!!

That is great! I know you will do great and with all your experiments I am sure your insight will be awesome. You will have to video tape it (OMG, I am old) and post it on Youtube so we can share it here. That would be stellar!!

Congratulations! Hopefully your next visit will be even better news.

I am following the Clean Eating principles at the moment. I considered Paleo but it seems a bit extreme. Do you eat alot of pre-packaged Atkins foods or are you following the principles and making your own meals?

I am very very low carb…stick to dark green salads, steamed veggies like spinach, broccoli, cauliflower cabbage and mushrooms…I eat eggs almost everyday..meat, cheese, olives..I use the atkins shakes..and occasionally the frozen dinners..but the other crap spikes my blood sugar..

FANTASTIC! I am so happy you shared that good news. I go in next month for my next A1C. I hope for good news then, too.

Awesome all the way around. Having a Dr like that is great. Doesn't it want you to keep going on a healthy path?

AND…I LOVE the fact that he asked me for my patient ID number and to verify all my personal information, even though he was certain he was speaking to me BEFORE he would give me my test results…I think I am going to like being his patient…and just between you me and the wall…he is HOT as all get out to boot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
