I have had numbers under 6.0 for 2 years now my last test was 5.4 just a week ago. My question is have any of you folks had numbers like this and what action if any was taken from your dr. Just would like some feedback from someone with simular numbers.
Thanks smilewinkgrin

Congratulations on the 5.4. That is awesome to bring it down from 6. Are you on meds? Do you have a food plan? Can you get any regular exercise? Those are the things that effect your levels and the better you are on track the better the numbers. Looks like you are doing something right!

Hi lugie:)

I remember when you first posted here. You are doing so good:) You should be so proud of your accomplishments! I have brought my A1c from over 15 a year ago to 5.1 and lost 100 pounds. I was told at the diabetic center that I am not considered diabetic any more even if I take meds for diabetes. From this, I believe your doctors just want you to keep doing what you are doing. I don't take byetta but am on Metformin and lantus. The meds alone can't make the difference...we do by how we live. You are living the right way. I also walk 3 miles a day and go out dancing on weekends. That 100 pounds I was carrying made this impossible a year ago. I feel so good now. I no longer live to eat but eat to live. Take care and keep up the great work:)

Lugie and ceebee, you guys are the reason I had to come back and read here. I need the inspiration. I have been doing well with my A1c below 7 and then everything started falling apart. When I went in a couple of weeks ago it was over 10. I gots lotsa work to do. Stress eating has been terrible. And now there are the whole weeks at a time when I am barely home...between hospital and my running around for my business. But I will get this figured out! Congrats to both of you on jobs well done. You both are true inspirations!

Karen

Lugie,

Those are very good A1C's! :-) My Doctor prefers a 6.5,but will accept 7.Am keeping Fingers crossed that at my next Blood Chemistry my A1C will be lower than the 8.2 I had October 9.
