Default I did it!!!!

I was diagnosed in Oct 2013 as Type II with an HA1C of 8.8. I screwed around with the ADA approved diet until late December 2013 with no improvement. I started a LCHF WOE at that time.

Today I went to the doctor to get the results of my Apr 10 2014 lab tests. My HA1C was 5.4!!!

My doctor is amazed and I'm thrilled. I naturally hoped to get to a normal HA1C someday when I started this WOE, but I really didn't have any expectation that I could do it this quickly. With a LCHF diet and a lot of help and support from some very special people I found here, I accomplished a goal that was only a dream 4 months ago.

Thank you all for your advice and support. I could never have done it without you!!!!!

Well done - and as several of the others have said, there is only one person to take the credit - YOU.

You might have had a few tips from folk on the forum - but you're the one who stuck to it and did all the heavy lifting.
