Just tried out the at home test kit (http://bit.ly/17Ije0
). Worked like a charm and the best part was that I've managed to get my HBA1C down from 7.3 (4/8/09) to 6.3 (7/26/09). Combination of eating low carb and walking 4 miles every day at about a 4mph pace seems to be doing the trick. Gonna shoot for 5.5 3 months from now if I can keep up the discipline of the diet. Incidentally, listening to audiobooks (via www.audible.com
) makes those walks go by quickly - I can't tell you how many books I've listened to over the years, while getting in my exercise.
