This is just amazing to me. My husband's blood sugar was an average of 250 and higher for something like 15 years. Glycolated Hemoglobin is a blood sugar test that gives the doctor an average of a person's blood sugar over the previous 90 days. In November, his glycolated hemoglobin results were 9.2~~definitely <b>not</b> good, actually very bad, he was being told he was going to end up using insulin. The end of February, after seven weeks on Atkins, his Glycolated Hemoglobin was 7.2. Not excellent, but much better. The month of December he was still out of control and that month was part of the previous 90 days of the test. That is a huge improvement. His next test should be even better. He is so happy to finally have his type II diabetes under control. Who knew that a low fat high carbohydrate diet would put his blood sugar at such dangerous levels? This is such a relief for both of us. He's already had two heart attacks that the doctor attributed to out of control blood sugar levels.
