Went to see our new Doctor last Friday and was very pleased with him. He even told us that if we ever needed to see him for any reason on the same day we call, that he WILL see us no matter what! Boy that's a first. Then yesterday he personally called and talked to both my husband & I over the phone concerning our test results. My husbands was great, and he told me my kidneys,& liver, were great. My blood work was really good, and A1C was 6.1, which was down from last test which was 6.5. My cholesterol was 200 and he prefers it 170 or less, but wasn't too concerned being as all my other tests came back so good. So this Keto/Atkins way of eating is really doing great. My fasting BG this morning was 114, which is a big change from the 135-140 range. Will be continuing this way of eating. By the way, I took myself off Metformin almost two weeks ago and BG has ranged from 79 to 115, so very pleased. Told Dr. what I had done and he was ok with it and said whatever I was doing to keep it up as it was working. Going to see him again on April 4 and see what has changed since the last visit. He also took me off 4 other pills for blood pressure & water retention, and gave me one pill to take. The others were counter acting each other. I'm really liking this doctor !
