Default AWESOME visit to endocrinologist!!!!

My 3month checkup resulted in me being discharged from my specialist to the care of my family physician for my - are you ready for this - treatment of my CONTROLLED diabetes. A1C was 5.8!!!!!!!!! BP was normal, 121/7-something. Cholesterol a little high, but no need for anything to treat it. My BP meds were lowered about a month or so ago. Glucose reading on day of visit to lab was 6.8 fasting.
