Like "Okay, lets start with the right name. It is A1C. I have no idea what they mean, but you A1C score is a 3 month snap shot of your blood sugar levels. You would like that number to be between 6 & 7. They should retest in 3 months to see how you are doing. To drop your A1C, here is a snapshot view. Sounds like you have already dropped your soda, sweet tea, alcohol, and sweet treats. Next, you need to watch your carbs. 2-3 carb servings per a meal is a good start. A carb serving equals 15 grams of carbs. You need to count them all. Example if you have a serving size of cereal and it is 45 grams per serving and you add milk which may be 17 grams per serving, you will consume 4 carb servings for this meal. If you ignore the serving size and just fill your cereal bowl and end up with a double serving, but you don't add any additional milk, you are at 7 carb servings for the meal. Wow! I am going not die from diabetes, but from starving to death. So you change what you eat for b-fast. Instead of cereal, you go ta a 2 egg omelet, with a slice of ham, lots of veggies in the omelet and you get about 2 carb servings. This is because this is a protein breakfast. Pizza, corn, potatoes are all sugar spikers for me. You will learn. sorry you had to join this ship! Jim "
