“I’m good at 150 and 120 is perfect. When I’m in the 80s and 90s, my family tells me I’m a nasty individual. And then when it goes into the 300s, which it rarely does, I am also a nasty individual.” Marie keeps a log and faxes it regularly to her doctor.

HbA1c

Between 6 and 6.5%

Food

“Over the course of the years, I have learned what to eat and what not to eat. I stay away from high carbs. It’s mostly instinct now.”

Exercise

“We have an treadmill at home. That’s one nasty little piece of equipment. And that’s what I use. Or I walk around my block five or six times, a couple of times a week. It’s a very large block.”

Complications

None
