well first off i have lost 28.8 pounds and now 4 points off my bmi index yay me. then they did an ekg and my heart is fine but she wants me to take 81mg of baby aspirn a day to protect my heart. says she likes what i am doing to control my diabetes. then she did another a1c test. on march 29 i was a 6.8 and now today i am a 5.8 on my a1c test. i went down a whole point and it is awesome. so i am still diabetic but my a1c test is like not having diabetes at all! she said my previous lifestyle was wreaking havoc on my pancreas but now with my new diet my pancreas is starting to work better again. she said maybe in a couple of months i can go off the meds. said i could probably go off now if i want to but i dont want to risk it because with the meds i have good numbers and i dont want to go back to bad numbers. i go to my foot doctor at 320 today so i can figure out what is wrong with my toes then. it was an overall good visit. yay. also i dont have to use my logbook she says i can just put everything into my phone app glucose buddy.

I think you are doing the right thing by continueing your meds, you will know if you can go off of them as your blood sugars will be low. If they get too low, let your doc know right away. I am glad that your pancreas is working better. I had the same thing. The doctor has threatened pills, but I haven't had to take them yet. I feel fortunate for that.

I hope that you are having a great day today.

Hugs, Karen

PS Sounds like you are doing all the right things...

Sounds wonderful, way to go on the weight loss, wow, terrific...Hope you can bring those numbers down some more...
will be thinking of you, and know you can do it cause it seems like a good goal for you, and yes stay on your medicines
until you can get clearance from your doctor, but hopefully that will be soon...
Many well wishes and cheers for you and keep it up...
