: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.

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.
