My most recent tests results were better than I had expected. According to my latest test results, I am now just at risk of diabetes and no longer diabetic.
Just 0.1% point lower and I would basically be diabetic free. So now I need to keep up what I have been doing for the 90 days prior to this last test. What will my next Hemoglobin A1C test be?
How did I manage to lower my Hemoglobin A1C by a full point? I spoke with several friends who are physician assistant, cardio nurse, and dietician. They all knew I had worked out most of my life but in the past few years have slacked up. So they suggested that I get back into a work out routine and lose weight. I managed to lose about 30 pounds between my first Hemoglobin A1C test with a 6.7% to this test with a 5.7% result. I also decreased my carb intake and increased my fiber intake. I try to stay under 100 grams total carbs a day including the fiber carbs. I try to eat a minimum of 30 grams fiber carbs a day. This means I have cut out most breads and pasta but I have found several good options that I will include in later posts.
