My name is Addie and I'm a Type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed August of 2008 with an A1c of 11.3% and a non-fasting BG of 346 mg/dL.
Right now I am on a very low-carbohydrate diet, as well as Metformin and Glyburide. I am proud to say that I have lost 53 pounds so far and that I brought my A1c down to 5.0% as of my last doctor's appointment in March.
I feel so much better now than I have in years, especially because of the significant weight loss! Right now my goal is to improve my HDL and lower my total cholesterol while maintaining good blood sugar.
I have joined other diabetes forums on the internet, but I am always looking for more information, support, and advice.
