Celebration Day!

It's a day of celebration for me today.   I was dreading my diabetes check up fearing that I would not see any additional improvement in my numbers.   I was pleasantly surprised!  My A1c was at 6.2.   The A1c of a non-diabetic person is below 6.0.  I am two tenths of a percent away from normal!    Now I would say that I am at the place where I can nearly say that I have reversed my diabetes.   7 months ago, at my original diagnosis my A1c was at 8.2 with an average daily glucose readings of 180-230.   In april my A1c was down to 6.8 and today it is 6.2!      My daily BG numbers average from 113-135.  Still not perfect but well under control.   To add to the excitement my blood pressure was a very normal 110/72 and my total weight lost since December is 20 pounds.   My careful attention to what I put in my mouth, my Chia seeds and Multibetic vitamins have been helpful but I don't want to rely on them forever.   Yeah!!!!!
