I have been really slacking on the blog lately, but I went to the doctor today and got my first post-diagnosis A1C.

The doctor said, “You hit a home run. 5.1 %.” I was floored. I knew it would be better than 12.8 % , but I was figuring it would be around 7%. I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing – taking my metformin er 500 mg twice a day religiously, and following a low glycemic index diet. I’ve weaned myself off of Amaryl.

When he told me, I was so happy I thought I had won the lottery. Really, I haven’t been this elated in a long time.

I have much more hope for the future. I can do this!
