He is not a runner, well...not yet anyway, but he has done something amazing and truely a cool impossible. 3 months ago he was admitted with a serious joint infection, new diagnosis of diabetes and an average blood sugar of well over 300.  Today we celebrated his new average blood sugar of 90.  That's in less than 90 days folks.  He reduced his cardiovascular risk by 300% by bringing his a1C from an 11+ down to 5.4.  I usually do jumping jacks when my patient's are able to edge their A1C down 1 to 2 points in 3 months. He brought his down almost 6 points.
