Just found out the end of May. My 1st A1C test was 10.7 also devolped 2 blood clots and heart was damaged some. Spent 5 days in the hospital. Put on blood thinners, heart meds to make the heart stronger and diabetes meds, lost 51 pounds so far and was taken off the first diabetes meds and put on Metformane (sp).I found this site by accident and love it. Have type 2.

Welcome to one of the best sites in the world. I say one of the best because I have not been on all of them. A few things about this site you will enjoy here is its love for one another compassion for each other a listening ear an open mind & heart. It can be very educational informing & when it needs to be a bunch of laughs. Glad you stopped by & stayed we wouldn't be the same w/out you. Be blessed & know that you are favored in the name of Jesus.

Working 4 Jesus, & Loving it.

Welcome to DC. Sometimes an accident can be a good thing. Sorry you had blood clots and damage from them. My father had them and was also on blood thinners, They can be real difficult to control. Congrats on the weight loss, if you wanted to lose it.
