I went to an endocrinologist today for the first time and think he will be very good for me. Diagnosed abt 10 yrs ago, I have done well until abt. a year or so ago. My A1C went from 6.7 to 7.7 in four months, then slowly down to 7.4 then 7.2 in June. I admitted to not eating properly for various reasons. The new doctor says basically that based on our conversation and history that I know what I need to do and he said that he believes I can bring it down by proper diet. My goal is to get it under 7.0, eventually to around 6.7. Those 300+ readings scare me. I know I can do this, but need help, support, motivation, positive reinforcement, ETC. Is anybody out there? Can you give me any advice? Thanks.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
