Hello. This is my first post in a "discussion," and I hope people read and respond. I was diagnosed as diabetic about two years ago. Also diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy, and diabetic peripheral vascular disease as well. Probably had all three for years, just didn't know. Anyway, my initial A1C was 6.8. I've been managing through diet and exercise. No meds. Lost about 25 pounds. I got my A1C down to 6.5, then an increase up to 6.6, then back-to-back readings of 6.5. Just last week I got a reading of 6.2. That's in the pre-diabetic range. Does that mean that I'm no longer diabetic? I know it may seem trite to some, but it's very important to me. Thank you!
