Frigging amazing congrats

That sounds ridiculously low. Mine is 5.7 and I need to get it above 6 according to my doctor.

It's not too low for a type 2

Congrats on ypur A1C. Curious; how many highs and lows did you have during this period.

Comment by Lloyd on September 1, 2013 at 8:18am

1% below 70, 1% above 140

Comment by Unknown Diabetic on September 1, 2013 at 8:24am

Good for you. That is some really tight control. Do you eat low carb?

Comment by Lloyd on September 1, 2013 at 8:32am

I limit my carbohydrates to 80 a day, and have for 6 years.

Comment by Unknown Diabetic on September 1, 2013 at 11:35am

I just got my A1C done on Thursday and it was a 5.7 with to many lows. I still consider that a victory because I eat close to 300 carbs a day. I wish I could get myself to eat low carb but at this point and time I just don't have the willpower. I am inspired by your control.
