Test results

I just had a consultation with my doctor for my A1C and other bloodwork.

And. They really couldn't have been better.

My A1C, which measures my blood glucose level over three months, was 5.9. Which means I'm not even in the standard range for diabetes. My last reading was 6.7; my first, the one that got me on meds and diet was 9.

My doctor says that if I get down to 165 - if I lose another 13 lbs - he'll probably take me off some, if not all, meds. That includes the blood pressure med - and my current blood pressure is 120/80 (it was higher last week, but last week I'd just started a period, and I was retaining water) and the cholesterol med. Because one is supposed to have a ration of good/bad cholesterol under 4.4. And mine? Was three.

We do eat a lot of fish, and I'm drinking a lot of soy milk.

I'm not changing a thing of what I'm doing.

Current Mood: thrilled

That is great news. Good for you for the changes you've made to diet and the exercie. It looks like it is paying off.
