I have been eating more veggies and fruits and less pasta. I have been drinking more water and exercising by lifting weights and walking and swimming.. My last A1c w 9.1% and I need to get it to 7% or below before February. I am going back on an insulin pump to also manage better.

low carb way of eating
daily 16 to 24 hour fasting
exercise
maintaining ideal weight
getting sufficient sleep and eliminating stress
that's worked for me for 10 1/2 years … diagnosed with an A1c of 10%. currently 5.5%

My lowering has come from changing to a very low carbohydrate way of eating and exercise. My goal is to eat 25-40 carbs daily and get that from veggies primarily. The addition of resistance training such as weight lifting helps also.

Obviously, the tighter your control the better your A1c. My last was 6.2. My goal is to get it into the 5's. Many people here have had success doing just that.
