Default im celebrating.

Well I did it, I'm no longer labled diabetic. Not that I ever claimed that label, and have not from the start. My medical chart no longer says will control diabetics with diet and exercise. It now says no longer diabetic. My A1C is 5.9 down from 11 just 3 long months ago. I'm 100% sure my meter is wrong, its 40 points higher than my blood work. I have changed strips, used controls, and got a new machine. The accuracy of this meter is way off.
I have no intention of going back to my old ways of eating, my doctor feels I am no longer insulin resistant. I may have a little something something, most likely a beer on the weekends. But that's going to be another 3 months away. I want this thing set in stone, that I'm not a diabetic, and I don't have high blood sugar, I'm not controlling it, I cured it!
I was at BG 185 last night, and felt very good, lots of time the meter shows high, my body does not show "high" signs. Not shakes, no headache, no stomach aches, no blurry vision I don't mind saying when I see the 185, it wipes me out, and has had me wanting to give up and say WTH many times. I'm down to checking 1 time a day now, that's all the insurance will pay for. Thankfully I have a friend that will sell me the strips whole sale. I'm not willing to step back into the old way I lived and ate. I'm not cured, yet, but I'm well on my way.
Bless y'all for the friendship, the listening ear, the shoulders to cry on, but mostly the encouragement and support for myself and others, just knowing someone else's experances is a testimony of encouragement. Reading that someone has gone through a situation that I was going through, made it easier. Y'all are the best! ❤️❤️❤️

Hey Blue Girl, that's awesome! Congratulations. Well, I remember you weren't sure about your diagnosis at the beginning. If I remember correctly, your numbers fluctuated. So are you saying that your meter was higher than what your lab work showed?

I hope you continue to post here. I've enjoyed reading your posts.

Thank you, I was sure it was fixable, and was giving it 210%. Much higher, I was showing 157, and my labs showed 116. I'm sure I'm not out of the woods, yet. I'm still eating LCHF but adding some calories. My last crazy reading was because of low calories as soon as I upped them to 1500, my BG number have settled down again. And my A1C was done during the crazy BG time.

I'll be here, I'm not going anywhere. I still have a lot of learning to do. And I like to be with people that believe in what we are doing, LCHF.
