I started out at 11 ac1 back in 2002 but as time went on I was usually at 9 or under but had never when under 7 until last ac1 check in february. I want to keep it down and my sugars. I don't know but i have a lot of pain and that causes it to rise doctor told me. My dad lost his legs for not following his instructions and I don't plan to go that way. any suggestions. Also got dizzy in sun at sea side heights last sunday even though I was drining lots of water…

I was diagnosed Feb 2009 with an A1C of 14.1. I stopped eating bread (All kinds) pasta and potatoes and started eating lots of low carb vegetables. My numbers dropped fast. My next A1C in June of 2009 was 5.9. My last four tests have all been under 6. My lowest 5.4. I write how I control my blood sugar here. Click on the link below.

Good luck

Hello and welcome
I lost my mom over it and I will not go that way!
Do you count carbs?
what are you on to care for your diabetis?
Its a job to keep your bs inline I work at it every day
my last one was 6.2
Best wishes
