A1c = 5.4

Diabetes Control CardThe test result are in and once again my A1c brought a huge smile to my face when I opened the letter last night. It came in at a 5.4 and proves to me that everything I have been doing up until this point has been spot on. And with the probiotics my IBS symptoms has seem to have gone away. I think I may celebrate by treating myself to a little work on the bowflex this morning. Waa Hoo!

About SimpleLivingOver50

At 53 years old I am starting to realize how life changes both physically and emotionally. I strive for a life of simplicity. I am winning the battle with type II diabetes, created a plan to have all debt paid off in 4 years including the house, taking advantage of every opportunity to live life to it's fullest through adventures in nature, hiking, biking, loving and learning.

    Congrats Billy!! That’s a fantastic number!!!

    Do you think you’ll ever ‘reverse’ your diabetes? Or do you think reverse is just a word misused when blood sugar levels are kept under control?

    My test came in @ 5.6 and I’m determined by Christmas to have my blood sugar not a concern daily, that my lifestyle will keep it in check. Most days it’s a good if not great reading, but sometimes out of nowhere I double test because I’m like wait, what happened? LOL.

    I’ll keep at the weightless, keep on building my core strength and being a healthier happier me, and also reading your blog which is great encouragement. It’s also good to know that I have company along my path to better health.

    Keep up the hard work!

    Oh wow this is great! Just dealt with a patient of HbA1c of 9,02!!! Can you believe that😁 wish you all the best dear :*

  5. Wow! That’s awesome, congrats!! I hang out around 6.9. Almost exactly a year ago I was incorrectly diagnosed as type 2 until this past March when it was discovered I am in fact type 1. Hoping to get my numbers lower! I’ve learned exercise is magical and of course, for me, counting those carbs correctly.

    Well done Billy, congrats!

  10. Great job!! I’m just catching up on your blog tonight as I’ve been working hard on an online diabetes education program to reach more folks and help them accomplish what you just accomplished. There are so few out there really teaching people with diabetes how to do this. It’s sad because it’s really mostly just common sense. Thanks for showing so many the way and of course, leading by your own example. You absolutely rock!
