11/01/2019 Where I’m At Today, Diabetes Awareness Month

Friday, November 01, 2019

Today is a beautiful Day. November is National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the country team up to bring attention to diabetes. In partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), this year’s focus is on the link between diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Because of SparkPeople I have learned so much about diabetes that I have been able to bring my glucose (blood-sugar) from 810 down to 84 daily average and my A1C from 13.2% down to 5.3% in three years. I am also off of all medication.

Amazing what happens when I follow directions. I pray that this brings hope to all that are new to diabetes.

I need to stay dedicated to the program because I know I could backslide at any time.

Thank-you for all the feedback and support from everyone.
Bill
