Today's doctor visit: I've lost 15 lbs in 6 weeks and brought my A1C down a point. The doc took me off the mealtime insulin, now I'm just taking it twice a day - and I got the pen! WOOT! I hate the syringes, this is great. I also got referrals to a vascular surgeon for the varicose veins, & a general surgeon for my abdomen. I'd call this progress!
