Diagnosis as a type 2 diabetic reading of 468 mg/dl.

by Bonny C Damocles

My diagnosis as a type 2 diabetic in July 1991 was based on a blood sugar reading of 468 mg/dl.

Our family physician told me to take anti-diabetes pills right away. I begged him to give me some time to do it my way.

Then he required me to take a stress the following day.

As soon as I passed the stress test, he gave me the permission to exercise as hard as I could.

Our physician was a cardiologist so he must know what was good for me.

After ten days of running the stairs for a total of 2 hours per day, the blood sugar readings I got were already in the 130 mg/dl - 140 mg/dl range.

I reported these to our physician and he gave me the persmission to continue doing my daily exercise routine.

Long story short, after 25 years and 3 months, most of my A1c's were in the 5.2% to 6.3% range. The last one I got on October 3, 2016, was 5.8%. I have never had hypos and diabetes complications.

During the last 18 years, my stair-running exercise time was 1 hour per day.
