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!
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.
