I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 5 years ago. I’ve kept a 6.9 - 7.1 A1c, but now I’m ready to get done to the 5’s.

Welcome, jar! It sounds like you've done a good job of controlling your blood glucose/A1c. What's getting you to think about lowering that number?

Thanks @itissteve.
I started to view some YouTube videos by Dr. Bernstein and he says why can’t a diabetic still have normal non diabetic glucose numbers. As I understand so far, Of course there are limitations, so we have to learn what they are and adapt.

Dr. Bernstein's videos are very inspiring.

Hi jar, welcome to the forum. Dr. Bernstein's question is a good one and there is no reason why it can't be closer to normal. It just takes some work to achieve and avoid any pitfalls.

Welcome jar! I have one of Dr. Bernstein's books. I went from a 10.5 to a 5.3 within a year. It was probably a lot sooner. It's just that my lab work was done a year after the initial one. You can do it!

I hope you continue to post. Lots of knowledgeable people on this forum.

@alamogirl Wow that is a huge drop. I just received Dr. Bernstein’s book, Diabetes Solution. I’m looking forward to the read.
