Welcome, Virginia. We're here to help. A really helpful site to learn more about this condition is Blood Sugar 101 and well worth a read. Also, when I began, I read lots of the old threads here.

Lots of wisdom here...

Welcome! I second the Blood Sugar 101 site. The Recipes section here is also very interesting!

Welcome, Virginia! I was diagnosed 7 months ago with a 10.5 A1C and a fasting blood sugar of 317. By the 4th month, I was down to a 5.0 A1C and a fasting blood sugar of 68! Don't lose hope! This site truly saved my life. They are Still saving it!

Is 'Virginia' just a username? I live in Virginia.

Hi Bree,

Virginia is my real name. I live in Georgia. I have visited Virginia, what a beautiful state you live in!

Thanks for the words of encouragement. You have had great results! What discipline you have! I hope I will be just as fortunate!

Virginia

Hi Bree,

Hi Virginia!

I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'm still trying to get used to my app. I'm on Metformin right now, but they are lowering the dose every month. I went off of it a couple if months ago, but truly needed to get back on because of my own inconsistency in following LC/HF a couple of days a month. I soon found out through this site that doing that is a NO-NO. Ha!
