A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don't allow the happy moment, because they're so busy trying to get a happy life.

I don't have "before," but my current A1c number is 5.1.

I didn't have an A1C test when I was diagnosed with type 2. With low carb, I've kept mine below 6%, the last one was 5.4%.

There is increasing evidence that cancer feeds on glucose, yet the "experts" continue to recommend a low fat, high carb diet, guarenteed to raise glucose. They can't even let it go when confronted with evidence that low fat does no good.

Sugar is the enemy; fat is my friend. The only bad fats are artificial fats.

I'm diabetic type 2 (early stages/IR)

Before = 6.5

3 months after diagnosis and low carbing from the day of diagnosis = 5.7

Also have lost 26lbs since diagnosis, 07/01/08, as well as get my triglycerides and cholesterol within "normal" ranges. They were previously elevated.

5.1, 5.4 and 5.7... EXCELLENT!!! That's some seriously well controlled glucose levels.

Keep up the good work and here's to your good health!
