    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Latest Lab Results

    Here is a summary of my latest lab work:

    A1C = 5.1%
    FBG = 89
    Total Cholesterol = 171
    Triglycerides = 55

    My RBC and platelet counts were a bit low, so that needs my attention.

    That result is better than mine. My last result was 6.1 not too bad but hi and my cholesterol around 200, Triglyce 60, but since that day I've been really working out and exercising and walking a lot and drinking plenty of water, I'm hoping for next time it would be much better but every diabetic is different that's what I learned here
