I just returned from the doctor's office. I have finally found a doctor that listens, cares, and is not judgmental. I have lost 7 pounds since December 12TH and my A1C is 6.4. I do have severe osteoarthritis in my knees, hip, and back. I will have to have some bone spurs removed but not for a few months. I will be able to get shots in my hip and back. All of my other tests came back clean. This is the best post Christmas present I could ever hope for.
