"Wow. That is a record breaking drop in your A1c of over 50%. Dr Bernstein claims and many TuD Members (myself included) confirm that a low carb diet dramatically improves your cholesterol. Conversely a high-carb, low-fat diet worsens it. So you…"

Been awhile

Sorry it's been awhile but been busy. I had my check up last month and my A1C went from 11.4 to 5.5. Great news for me but the bad news is that my cholesterol is up. So needless to say my diet just got a little more bland. My numbers have stayed low enough to where i don't need to test as much but I STILL do test. Hope all of you are doing as well as I am. Feel as though I am stuck in a rutt in the exercise part though. I just have no real motivation to go to the gym or anyone willing to go…See More

Anniversary

Just celebrated 10 yrs of marriage with my wife yesterday. Thinking back the all the things that have changed Hair, Weight, Kids. the only thing that didn't come up was diabetes. One of the biggest changes in our lives has become so second nature with the testing and the diet that we have completely forgotten about it. BTW my sugars are 123 and below and even though the weight loss has slowed I feel great. Thank the lord for the blessings and trials he puts us through.See More

Two month Check Up!!!

Sorry that I haven't been on here a lot but you all know how busy things can get. Anyway, I had my two month check up after being Diagnosed and got some great results and I just wanted to share. Since see the docotr the first time i have lost 23 pounds and am continuing to lose. My blood pressure has dropped to 114/64 and the best news of all is that since being first diagnosed and having a BS of 274 or higher I have kept my sugars down to under 130 sometimes down to the high 70's. Doctor says…See More
