It was with great joy that I received the results from my latest labs that declared I was no longer diabetic!

The diagnosis of diabetes is determined from a blood test that measures your Hemoglobin A1C level. Depending on your A1C level, you are normal, pre-diabetic, or diabetic.

I had moved my A1C from a 7.0 in July to a 6.1 in January. Since that was one of the key factors to undertaking the wellness program, it was a huge win!
