Latest test results

Hi everyone. I just received my latest test results and am thrilled. In December I had an A1c number of 6.1% and my total cholestrol was 255. After 3 months of low carb eating my A1c dropped to 5.1% and cholestrol dropped to 205. Yeah! I was suprised to see such a big drop in only 3 months just by diet alone. The low carb way of life truly works!

That's terrific. You are right, it's amazing what effect a low carb way of eating can have on our blood sugar. Keep up the good work.

I try not to preach low carb but when I see the results that many of us have achieved it's hard to stay off my soap box. So I guess the best we can do is show by example and that's exactly what you are doing.

That is so awesome!! I've low and moderate carbed off and on since my earlyish 20's. and I have always had pretty good blood work. I am a pretty large woman, and the Doc's have always been surprised. I blame it on Atkins

Anyways, a drop of one whole percent is wonderful!!!!

Thanks all for your kind words! As long as I don't get cocky and go back to my old ways of eating thinking i'm cured, i'll be okay.
