Just got my 3 month A1C follow up results. My A1C has gone down from 6.4 to 5.4 (stops typing and does goes off to do a "happy dance" and comes back to typing). All this without medications and with diet and exercise. I had to share it with the community that has inspired, helped, encouraged and motivated me to put me on the right path. Thanks for everybody who put up with all my frustrated , ignorant and sometimes O.C.D type behavior. I know I will continue to have questions, doubts and frustrations and I am sure I will continue to find answers, encouragement and inspiration here.

Here are the stats:

Before 4/19/2010
A1C : 6.4
Fasting Glucose Average : 140

Total Cholesterol : 198
HDL : 35
LDL : 136
Triglycerides : 134

After 7/13/2010

A1C : 5.4
Fasting Glucose Average : 110

Total Cholesterol : 165
HDL : 38
LDL : 108
Triglycerides : 94

I still have a long journey ahead to reach my goal. But the results provide a good validation for all the lifestyle changes I am making.

Once again I thank everyone in the community for all the help and support.

These are great numbers and wonderful improvements. We help, but you did the hard work and you should be proud. (applause) =0)

What's important is the result, not necessarily the method at this point, although you had "help," it was still you that did it, feel proud, be proud.

I completely agree! The more we get it under control no matter how, the longer and more meaningful our lives become. Believe me, if the doctor insisted on putting me on meds and that was the only way I could control this I would, and still will, take that option in a heart beat. I don't really care how I get it under control as long as it is under control I will be a happy camper.
