    I really appreciate this video, thank you. I'm 35 and considered myself fit. Thought it would be "fun" to use my father in law's blood glucose meter and was shocked at the result – clearly showing my blood to be in the prediabetic range. I've been meticulously monitoring my blood for 3 weeks and found that my readings are now in the healthy range, but it requires me to stick to a really low (refined) carb diet. I've ordered a private hb1ac test after recently finding out about it. Your vIdeo helped to put it into context. This whole experience made me realise that there must surely be 1000s of people like me who will be sleep walking into diabetes. I'm thankful for this knowledge and hope I can reverse it.

    I have the cure for diabetes. Just DON'T put carbs and sugars into your body. Don't even consume fruit & throw the rice & bread in the garbage.
    There you go; what YOU don't put in into your body can't harm you.

    Well done ! A nice, clear and thorough explanation pitched at an appropriate level for your audience. People can snipe about sound quality and jump-cut edits, but I was watching to learn more about HBA1c not how to produce broadcast-quality video. (I'm quite good at the video bit, but lamentable at the HBA1c control). I may yet need to become proficient in the control bit to ensure I can continue with the producing bit ! Neither is easy… Thank you for sharing !

  22. essentialeugene

    My A1c was 6.7. Is this too high?

  23. Rama Bhupal

    very nice explanation. to me it appears controlling type 2 diabetic is most simple process from your explanation.
    Why people made this too complicated .
    as Hemoglobin life is only <3 months.

    All type 2 diabetic patients should avoid eating any sugary associated for for some times.
    say 7 days. in that process you can reduce your HBA1C by 7*100/120= 5.83%

    means if you more Hba1c , do fasting with fat for more days

  24. Jsr gk Ik
