:DI am so excited!

:(I was diagnosised 10/10/11 diabetes (type 2) with an a1c of 8.3 and many feet troubles.

:)I have been working so hard to eat the correct things and at the right times. As well as trying to monitor my glucose level. I have had many ups and downs for no apparent reason.

:rolleyes:I had to change my meds last week because of insurance. I have now started (sp?) glypozide instead of taking Junuvia.

:pMy feet have gotten so much better that the podiatrist does not want to see me for another 6 months so no more every other week visits.


:eek:Now just a tad bit under three month, I had another a1c....
......drum roll
please....
.....
...5.9.
:cheer2:

Good going, GR! So happy for you!

I was having a lot of foot/ankle swelling prior to diagnosis, but it's completely gone once I started Atkins and that's been about 18 months now. The carbs in my Cokes, etc. made me retain fluid and now that's gone completely.

Thanks again everyone!

Now the goal is to stay between 90 and 110 for my eye appointment (February 2). Doctor said that would help in order to get the best prescription.
