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.
