Dear Danson7317: I'm afraid I don't actually see a question here, but by all means, CONGRATULATIONS on what appears to be excellent long term control of your diabetes. An A1c under 7% is considered safe, and as long as you are not experiencing frequent hypoglycemia, I would suggest you keep up the good work! You are an example of working through multiple medical challenges. I hope you share your success stories with a local diabetes support group in your area.
