"Wow, how in the world did you manage a 5.4 A1C so soon after diagnosis? I've been diabetic for 11 years and I've never gotten that low even though I'm very well controlled."

Happy diabetic

Posted on June 21, 2012 at 3:34pm 11 Comments

I got diagnosed January 9th, 2012. My a1c was 15.6 at diagnosis. Apart from peeing all the time and drinking a lot water plus losing weight, I felt fine with an a1c that high.

I am a happy diabetic and my two follow up visits after diagnosis were great. My first a1c was 6.0 and on my second visit my a1c was 5.4

I am happy to be in control and don't mind being a type 1 diabetic. If the good Lord lets me, I plan to live a full, healthy life and this condition is not gonna stop…
