It has been almost 3 months since I lowered my carb intake to ~40g / day. Once I got my basal and carb ratios figured out, I was very careful and kept tight control. For the last month, though, I have been working very long hours, not sleeping, and testing my BG usually only 1-3 times/day. I have stuck to my diet, though. My pump clogged a couple times, but I caught it, so nothing serious.
I just tested on the Bayer home A1C kit. BG at time of test was 81. My result was 6.8. I would like to be closer to non-D levels, but this is my first <7 in over 20 years. Previous was 8.0. I have no doctor and no insurance, but have never felt more optimistic about my chances of remaining healthy and in control. I owe a great debt to this site and its members for all of the information, advice, and support I've received here. Thank you.
