Like "Hey Sinjjin, it's great to meet you. I am glad you found your way to Diabetic Connect! I am not a physician, I am a therapist, and have clients who are living with various chronic conditions, including diabetes. I am wondering if you talked to your doctor about your a1c results. He/she might be able to suggest what you can do to take good care of yourself and stay on top of your a1c. For example, making modifications to your diet would help, and your doctor might be able to recommend a diet. He/she might also recommend activity you could get involved with, like regular exercise of some kind, that could be beneficial. What I really encourage you to do, if you haven't already, is to see what your doctor thinks about your results and what they are recommending. I sure don't think you are a loon. But I do encourage you to turn your concern about your health into positive action. I hope you will stay in touch with us and let us know how you are doing. "
