    My A1C is 5.7 and my doctor is on my case all the time. She has me convinced that if I reach 6.0 I will explode or implode or see angels playing harps. Her team says the "normal" non diabetic is about 4.5 I was diagnosed two years ago. Last month she finally let me sit in with the nutritionist who sees her diabetic patients. She was surprised I wanted to go to it. The other patients thought my 5.7 was wonderful. But I 'm thinking it isn't. its more like 900 lb people being envious of 400 lb people. I hoped to learn from the long time diabetics at my Doctors nutrionist/diabetic meeting but they offered nothing and had never heard of Dreamfield pasta which the nutritionist said was wonderful and she was glad I brought it up because she isn't allowed to mention brands. I subscribe to diabetic living. Couldn't have made it two years without them. They were my only source of 'what can I eat and why'. I read and reread every magazine over and over. Finding diabetic support in my town seems impossible. Good thing i love veggies and salads.
