Manish, is an Indian Type 2 diabetic 39 yrs of age. eo was faced with an A1C of 12 when he was diagnosed. He joined dLife.in on 2nd October, 2018 and his intro thread on the forum has following details:
- Date Diabetes Detected; Aug 1, 2018
- Latest A1C 12
- Total Cholesterol 300 mg/dL
- Triglycerides 490 mg/dL
- On two combi drugs for hyperglycemia
Around 11 months later, after having achieved A1C of 5.7 and on Metformin only, he has posted a short story about his successful journey on the forum and it reads as follow:
Would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Dlife.in family in helping me overcome this MONSTER of a set-back. Here I wrote a blog detailing my journey.
What I did not mention in the story-like blog is that my other parameters have ALSO improved considerably. Cholesterol 187 from 300
Triglycerides: 240 from 490.
Of course, a lot more to achieve and this is only a step in the right direction.
Once again thanks guys.
Congratulations Manish! A drop of A1C from 12 to 5.7, even after replacing all drugs with Metformin, is a great achievement.
