Great A1c

I am T2 on insulin(Humalog at mealtime and Lantus at bedtime), symlin and metformin. My last A1C 3 months ago was 8.8! After a stern talking to from my endo, I made a change in my eating, testing and logging sugars. I bought a nice journal to write down all my numbers and what I eat. It may sound simple but for me it works! I try to stay around 30 carbs per meal. Yesterday was my 3 month check, ,my first visit since the change. I have lost 26 pounds and my A1c hAS gone down to 5.7!! My endo was…See More

"Yeah, no doubt. I was never clear on the details, but blood sugar levels directly affect the lenses in your eyes. I believe high BG levels cause the lenses to swell, which causes transient changes to your vision. As soon as you normalize your BGs,…"

"Yes. Very much so. Three years ago I underwent seven, yep seven rounds of laser eye surgery. Been back a few times since. In October 2011, I went in and found out that not only did the bleeding stop, it actually regressed. I don't even have any…"

Control and vision changes

For the last 6 weeks I have made a complete turn around with my diabetes control. (T-2, humalog, symlin, lantus and metformin) My last A1C was 8.8 that was an eye opener. The next day I started to record everything I ate, kept a log of my sugars etc. SO, about 2 weeks ago I started to have bad headaches and trouble with blurry vision. Went to the eye doc. My perscription has changed for the better. Has anyone had their vision change for the better with good control? Oh and no trace of diabetic…See More
