A1C is 5.4!

My new A1C is 5.4% and I am very happy! An A1C test measures a person's average blood glucose control for the past 2 to 3 months. The normal range for an A1C is 4-6%. My A1C was taken after two months without using insulin.

A few weeks ago I saw my endocrinologist for my type 1 diabetes and she happily knows that I'm not using insulin and she does not want me to go on any medication. I still do blood sugar tests about 4 times a day.

So far I've been grain-free, dairy-free and legume-free for 8 months and it's going great. Considering I used to be a vegetarian, I really enjoy eating meat and fish, along with veggies, big salads, fruits, nuts, and eggs! For a dairy alternative I use almond milk or coconut milk.

As for the A1C, it's lower than what I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be in the upper fives not middle fives! My sugars have been really good still (70-120mg/dL) and the next A1C will be in December. I appreciate all the comments, questions, and emails!

  6. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from diabetes , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband was diagnosed of diabetes and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he had difficulty eating, and he always complain of stomach pain and he always have frequent urination . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to diabetes . I never imagine diabetes has a cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. diabetes has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony
