Ok so I posted yesterday about my 3 month checkup with the doctor...3 months ago my A1C was 10.3 as of yesterday it is 6.5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My total cholestral was 122!  So he was really proud of me.  Yesterday he told me don't be dissapointed if its not 7.  Anyway he said I will see him back there in 3 months and see what meds he can pull me off of!
Thanks for reading.  Once again I love this site and am so glad to have found it.

Good for you!!  We knew you could do it!  And this just makes me wonder just where are those doctors' heads?

I'm delighted for you Patti! What's your secret? How did you manage to drop your HbA1C so much so quickly?

All the best,

Well my doctor started me on Byetta the 2nd of April. That probably has been the most helpful.....but then again you cannot even imagine how much my eating habits have changed. It's incredible to me all the junk and candy that used to go into my mouth every single day. I did not go one night without a huge bowl of icecream. Not one. That was after I ate a meal big enough for 2. All day I would be in the candy box at work....
I told my doctor just getting off of sweets I could probably drop 20 pounds right off the bat.
The Byetta has really curbed my appetite. I CANT eat as much as I used to. Plus I think after being diagnosed around 8 yrs ago I just decided it was time to do something. I don't know if I was waiting for something really bad like losing my eyesite or amputation or what. But for some reason it finally clicked and I am so happy that it did.
Thanks for all the encougement!
