    Default A1C levels

    hello,

    My A1C level on Jan 11th was 10.9. I have been on Atkins since Feb 15th, I just got retested yesterday. My A1C is 6.9 still too high. I take 500mg Metformin once a day. I was hoping I would be able to get off the medicine. I go back in July, maybe then.
    I haven't been eating sugar and my carbs are via veggies. I do drink alcohol a few times a week (vodka). I guess I have to give that up.

    Look on the bright side. Atkins has helped drop that A1C in just a few short months! That means that it is working! Don't get too down on yourself and keep up the good work. Just imagine how far it could drop by July and let that be your motivation! And yes, I would give up the alcohol as you mentioned. Drinking and being a diabetic isn't a good combination anyways and technically isn't allowed until later in OWL. Good luck to you!

    In my opinion, ALL type II diabetics should follow Atkins Induction FOREVER!! In order to properly control your diabetes, you must severly restrict carbs to less than or equal to no more than 30grams/day. That will work
