My primary care physician, Dr. Jeri Lantz, sent me this message this morning after examining blood work yesterday: “Wow Dan – you aren’t a diabetic anymore! Great job!”
I had no idea we could just kick diabetes out of our lives, but I’m certainly grateful. The secret? I have no idea, though I’ve lost 35 pounds in the past few months and I continue to exercise an hour (minimum) a day. Frankly, I’m not as careful with my diet as I could be, though I keep my intake of carbs and sugars to a minimum.
For the record, my A1C is 4.5 percent with the standard being 5.7 percent or less.
Today, this is my reason for gratitude. And what a reason it is!
