Three months ago I was 409 lb. and had an A1C of 11.3. My doctor wanted to put me on insulin and gave me the riot act. Right afterwards I decided to go on the keto diet because a friend of mine told me about it. Fast forward 3 months. Today I just had my A1C test again by my doctor. It was 5.9. I also lost 49 lb. and am feeling better than ever. Today was a victory and I wanted to share it with everyone.

I am thankful I felt the need on June 6/20 to submit myself for fasting blood sugar chemistry. Now I know my hemoglobin A1C is 7.1 percent, which is above the normal limit of 6.4 percent. I need to watch my diet immediately to manage my HbA1c blood levels.
