About four or so months ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. At that time my A1C level was much, much too high. My dear family GP sat with me and outlined a new diet while also perscribing the latest type 2 med. The max A1C level for me was set at 7. Within one month it had dropped to 6.4 due to my med and new diet I was also losing weight. Another month saw my A1C drop even lower with more weight loss. Doc was soo proud as was Cathy and family. Fast forward to today. A1C still great and.........I've lost 48 pounds thanks to my dedication to a healthy diet. No fade diets simply did what doc told me to do. I'm still Big Lou cause there's more weight to be lost. One day though I'll be just plain ol' Lou. Thank you Lord for always watching over me.
