Not to mention higher fasting numbers - average is around 6.5 but has been up to 7.8. I've read online that a snack before bedtime helps, but for me it… Continue

I'm nervous.

When I was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my doctor has wanted me to see her every three months for a HbA1c. She also wanted me to have my eyes, feet and teeth checked regularly and see a nutritionist. I did that and saw her regularly, up until last December. In the last few months I just felt tired of seeing all those medical type people ALL THE DAMN TIME!

Hey Caramaena! Just popping by to see how you're doing. Do you have any questions or suggestions?
Great A1c...if you do have higher numbers in the course of the day, my sense is that you're having a fair amount of lows as well, in order to average out!
Love the pic. of the daisy....very sophisticated.
Take care, and keep in touch.....linda in canada.
