Default This forum has helped me so much

Visit to my doctor today for an A1C and blood pressure check. Blood pressure was a little high but not in any dangerous level. He wants me to cut back on salt. The amazing news: last Dec. I was at 6.4. I started following the LC/HF about four months ago. My A1C was 5.5 today. Dr takes time to talk and gave me a high-five when he saw the number.

I'm on 1,000 Metformin twice a day. I follow so many of the recipes on here and watch every carb.

Thank you for this forum.

I couldn't agree more. The best thing doctors could do for their diabetic patients is write a prescription for the Diabetes Forum.
