So, my first A1C was 6.5. The doctor said he was not greatly concerned but I needed to take control of my diet before it got bad. So, I did, I lost 30 pounds and changed my carb/calorie intake. My second A1C was 5.7. I was pleased it had came down, but discouraged it was still in the high fives. So, Thursday, I went for my pre op clearance and blood work and the doctor came in and told me he was so proud of what i had accomplished that my fasting glucose was great and all that good stuff. Then I got a call from the nurse last night around 7pm telling me my A1C had dropped to 5.4 and I only have to check my numbers in the mornings when i get up and as long as they are below 120 I do not have to worry with the rest of the day as long as my diet stays the same YAY!! Thank you all so much for your support! I am hoping my daughters A1c will be lower when we get her used to this diet, as hers was a lot higher than mine! So, please keep praying for both of us! Thank you all again for all the help!
