I am newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. I went to several classes with a diabetes educator and a nutritionist which was extremely helpful. In two months I completely changed my lifestyle - the way I eat (I count carbs) and work out at least 3 times a week. I lost 10 pounds and feel great. One guy in my class did the same and his AC1 level dropped so much that they took him off medication. I went to get the results of my AC1 test yesterday and it is exactly the same as last time - 6.9. I am so frustrated and dissapointed. Why do levels drop with some people with a lifestyle change and others dont?
