I was an insulin dependent diabetic, taking a u/500 insulin. Which means that it was highly concentrated and 5 times stronger than the ordinary insulin. I was on 4 shots a day, totaling 1000 units. My RNY was April 30, 2008 and I had my labs done 2 weeks before surgery. My A1-C was 17.9. The day I was discharged from the RNY, 4 days after, was the very last day I have ever needed anything for my diabetes. And I believe it was either my 3 or 6 month RNY check up, my blood work came back showing my A1-C was down to 6.8. While that was not in the normal range, it was more than a miracle that it had dropped so much. Still needing no meds for the diabetes at about 20 months out, I am sure my A1-C is lower.
If you have any questions, feel free to add me & message me. Good luck hun!
