I should be happy, 3 months ago I was 10.5 but a few Years ago on pills alone I was (5.8). I guess I just figure now that I am taking insulin, pills and eating almost no carbs or anything good, I would like it to be better.

Congrats on the 6.3! :)

NB: i too am experiencing slight DP, im waking up with 6mmols now when beofre i was 4.5-4.9. Im thinking i need to bump my lantus :(

I assume 6 mmols is 108 (6 * 18). and the A1c of 4.5 - 4.9 looks pretty good.

I wish I had that. If my numbers are correct, you seem almost "normal" in some folks parlence.

Great to hear. Have good day!

On the original question which is well asked.

I was surprised when my eyes were found clear of hemorraghes, my kidneys stabalized and efficiency went up instead of further falling like a stone and my weight dropped from 330 pounds to sub 250 pounds. Off the actos and starlix, reefed back on the 75/25 insulin.

That was when I got to 155 bg average and a1c of 6.9. My latest a1c was 6.4.

As we all want to be back as we were young, much praise needs to shared with one who got to 6.3

Is 6.3 good enough? If one is stopping the rot, answer should be heaven's yes.

Best wishes and good health.
