Welcome to my new site

If you came from hvyw8.wordpress.com you have arrived at the correct place.  if this is your first time visiting please review some of my past posts.  I plan to get back into the swing of things now that my team has completed a large project at work creating a website builder utilizing WordPress and that I am using to write this blog.  So all my future posts will be made to my personal site http://thirdgendiabetic.com.

So I promised my new A1C number from the other site for those of you who have wondered over here, but let me keep you in suspense a while longer.  If you are a diabetic and get regular check ups, you are accustomed to my background image.  The long medical print out of all your vital signs, blood levels, sugar levels, A1C, Hemoglobin, Glucose, Chloride, Creatinine, Potassium, Carbon Dioxide, HDL, LDL, Cholesterol, Triglycerides, and on and on and on…

Imagine my surprise when I received this in the mail in April.Levels Normal Hemoglobin A1C

Obviously, there was something wrong; the doctors have told me for the better part of the past two decades that this level or that level were out of whack.  Then roll in family history and the writing is on the wall or in my case tombstone.  So the first thing I did was called to find out what the letter meant; I have never got a letter like this since I’ve been getting tested by doctors.  OK, maybe when I was younger and the doctor would give me a lollipop if I did good with the check up.  The nurse informed me that all my levels were normal including my A1C.  Still in disbelief, I ask if I could please get a copy of the full medical report since I have become somewhat fluent in their terminology over the past two decades.

When I got the full report it showed all my levels were within normal healthy ranges including my A1C which was at 5.4%. 

NewNumber5.4 Hemoglobin A1C

 

 

So in about a year I was able to control my A1C levels to the point that on paper I am no longer diabetic.  As we all know though, once a diabetic almost always a diabetic.  If I go back to my old habits and not watch what I eat, I will end up back on that sugar coaster.  So with these great results I look forward to sharing what has helped me over this past year.  I hope you will continue to follow my progress, and feel free to share your progress.

 

 

As always…
