WOW. a year ago I weighed 258 pounds, cholesterol was 189, triglycerides-151, HDL-35, LDL-124.
No A1C was taken then.
Liver AST-68, ALT-121.

Fast forward a year in April I had issues with thirst, blurry vision so I went to the doc and the A1C was 13.9!
crzy

That was a wake up call. I changed my diet, dropped soda, candy and started eating much better. Plus walking 3 miles a day.
In September my A1C dropped to 6.0! Plus weight went down to 208.


On Monday of this week I had a physical.
I received the results today.
Weight-204, BP-110/60, Cholesterol-167, triclerides-102, HDL-45, LDL-102.
My AST DROPPED to 25 and the ALT DROPPED to 24.
A1C down to 5.7!

The liver numbers are amazing!! I was drinking a ton of Pepsi with HFCS, now I know what poison that is.

I feel so MUCH better now! I had to buy new clothes left and right. I am wearing size 34 pants now.
The doc dropped my meds to once a day in September and I hope to be off the next year.
He told me I am doing good and in excellent control. That made me feel good. The nurse told me after he left said he does not say that to very many of his patients.

This shows what one can do, don't let a Type 2 diagnosis make you think a death sentence.

Keep up the good work, stay away from junk food.

Now that weather is cooler you can talk your dog out for looooooong walks.

If only MORE people watched what they ate as closely!

Dont have a dog, wife is allergic to them. This nice weather makes for great walking, it's just the getting dark at 5PM....

I do cheat a bit on the weekends. If I have a Pepsi it has cane sugar in it.
I read labels religiously.
The cholesterol levels are a little surprise since I use butter, coconut oil, eat eggs, bacon etc.
Of course lots of veggies too.

That is fantastic news! You have every right to be proud of yourself. Do you feel like you got your life back?

A guy at work is morbidly obese, think closer to 400 than 300, was confirmed in April he had Type 2 but probably had it for years as he won't go to a doctor. Look at him today any you can't see any difference from April. Ticking time bomb.

Again, great work. Do you have a target weight?

Edit to add, just realized you dropped 50 lbs in 5 months? Amazing.

Good stuff! I reversed my Type-II as well through avoiding sugar and things that turn to sugar in the body like carbs etc. I also lost 70lbs!

Good work! It's amazing what you can do with diet alone. Just had my DOT physical a couple weeks ago and I'm down 20lbs in about 6mo just by cutting out soda and other junk food. Keep up the good work!

My current weight of 150ish at 5'8" is less than I was when in the 6th grade.

Hope to be down to birth weight by summer.

Wow great job. You are right, both soda with HFCS AND sugar are poison. Learn to love fruits and veggies. If only others would do as you have. I work with a guy who is totally ignoring his diabetes.
