Decent numbers
Liladieni posted:
Finally, a Dr. visit with some decent numbers. My a1C is down to 6.7...never have been able to get it below 7 before. Cholesterol is "near normal" though I can't remember the numbers exactly. Kidney function holding steady with a GFR of least it isn't getting any worse right now.

As for the low bs episodes I've been having, hopefully a little better control of medication and mealtimes will prevent those. They aren't too frequent anyway, maybe 2 or 3 a month.

So, I think I need a reward. Some extra time playing my favorite game will do it. Thats better than the huge ice cream sunday I want anyway, lol.

You must feel so proud of yourself, with going downward on your A1C! Great job! BETTER REWARD!

Thanks photo

Hopefully, I'll get the a1C down even more before the next round of tests, and drop a few pounds as well. I had a small weight loss this time, a couple of pounds, going to try for a bigger one over the next three months.
