I was diagnosed 3 months ago as diabetic - type 2 with a fasting glucose of 135. The dr suggested diet and exercise rather than throwing me on meds right away. Well, today, 3 months and 8 pounds later, my a1c is 6.4. He's quite happy. He is giving me a cholesterol med to try for 3 months when I will do another lab. He basically told me to keep doing what I'm doing and will see him in October until the August blood work sparks concern. I've been all worried about that a1c test but I guess a 6.4 isn't bad. I am still seeking more recipes and food ideas so keep 'em coming!!! My reading in his office was 91 after a 4 hour fast.
