    I am surprised at my A1c from 6/17/13, why? I have been on lots of antibiotics, steroids (for my lungs) and more recently 2 series (9 each time) of steroid injections in my neck for my muscles.

    Steroids and antibiotics do raise my sugars for days, so does the B12 shot which is once a month.

    Are you ready - 5.5%. As you know I can not do any exercise except walking which I do everyday - and I am not on diabetes meds. WOW is all I can say. I must be eating right.
    I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.
