Hi Cate,

Your welcome and you deserve the kudos. My husband had his diabetes under control for many years then his a1c started going up. Doctor put him on three medications but it still kept going up. Now he is on Metformin, Actos and insulin. Insulin is only once a day and has brought his a1c down to normal. Going on insulin was hard and gave us a wake up call with his diabetes. We tweaked his diet where it needed it and moved on. The doctor is trying to take him off of Actos as it is said to be bad for the bladder.

I am so proud of you for taking control of your health. I hope your appointment in July goes well. You are doing a awesome job.
