Hi Nat, it seems to me that a fasting of 115 to 120 is rather high if you're on meds for diabetes.  What does your doctor say?  What are you eating at meals?

Yes, an A1c of 7.2 is too high, but your fasting 115 to 120 is also too high and I don't know why it should be that high if you're on those meds.  You're right about changing what you eat.  Please read the sticky above that talks about food.  In the interest of your health, you just can't eat rice and bread as you did before (if that's what you were eating), so eat more vegetables in addition to a piece of protein (meat, chicken, fish).
