That's a great improvement! Way to go!
That is great news. You have really made outstanding progress.
But remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint. We will be here as you make it to mile 26.1 and you reach the hill. That is really what separates the non-diabetics from the real men.
I got mine down in a month or so, but my eyes paid the price. It can affect your vision quite a lot and can also increase the risk of damage from retinopathy, which is what happened with me. I hope you won't have any problems with it.
Now that you have got it down, you should have an eye exam. Diabetics should have their eyes check each and every year, because there are complications you can get, and finding out early can help. You should probably wait 2 months for things to stablize within your eyes and then have a checkup for vision, eye pressure and retinopathy.
Don't get checked right away, as your vision can take 2 or 3 months to stablize after such a huge change in blood sugar. If you use glasses or contacts, you should wait up to 6 months for things to stablize. Otherwise, you can end up needing to change your prescription twice.
Good work on getting it down, I'll bet you feel very relieved and happy :)
I definitely noticed blury vision for a number of weeks when I first started getting my act together... Still think I do occasionally, but nowhere near to the extent that was going on a month ago. Have an eye apt at the end of the month... hope thats not too soon.
Congratulations!! That A1c probably still reflects some of your time pre-diagnosis so the distance to go may be less than you think.
