From CDC:


NormalBelow 5.7%
Prediabetes5.7% to 6.4%
Diabetes6.5% or above


Mine bounces from under 6 to a bit over 6.... Doc doesn't seem too concerned... I just take my Metformin 500mg Extended Release every night and Lisinipril (?) low doe to protect my kidneys.... I don't eat or drink sugar stuff....

Might want to talk to doc... Maybe a low dose Metformin or diet modification might keep it down.... Lay off sugar and watch carbs and your might just come down some.... I got mine down from 10+ a few years back to a bit under 6 with diet... Doc wants me on the Metformin to help me manage my insulin levels...

Thank you for your insights, Hombre Grande!
You did a damned fine job going from 10 to 6 like that.
If you can do that with diet, so can I.
Mind you, I have an appt with Medicine Woman next week, just so I'm not flying blind.

I've done a decent job getting more active and eating cleaner (for vanity, sanity, and a desire to avoid turning my finicky liver into a hockey puck), and the statin is clearly helping stuff, BUT with this noise about A1C and triglycerides and subpar HDL, it's clear that I have to do better.

Man, as badly as my 50s sucked, everyone warned me the 60s aren't for sissies either.
:laugh2:
While they were 100% right, I'm still digging this terrestrial gig and wanna do whatever I can to stick around.

Good morning folkses. :wave:

As for the A 1 C figure: when I went into hospital for my kath examination last year my test read around 6 (can't remember the exact value) so I was diagnosed with diabetes (adult-onset d.).
After my surgery my blood was tested regularly as well as in the following weeks in rehab and my diabetes levels were always perfect there without resorting to any special diet , so go figure...
I guess a value of 5.7 should not be overly alarming.

Howdy all!

One thing I can say about not-Beetus, allmost-Beetus, Beetus, is that if one were to get off of most or all processed sugar, a LOT of aches and pains will go away and you'll feel quite different...

Good day folkses. :wave:


I had a New Guitar Day almost two weeks ago - hadn't posted it yet - needed some more time to see if this a keeper or if I'd return it.

I needed another guitar as much as I need a hole in my knee cap :rofl:but I had this itch for a P 90 Gold Top style Les Paul - thanks to Hubert and Freddy ;) and I found a way to scratch it with good conditions: a Burny copy. Excellent guitar at about a third what a recent Gibson would cost me
( before the recent price increase). This is also a rather light weight Les Paul at 3.8 kg. The weight has always been bothering me when it came to Les Pauls. Anyway - here she is:

Bends on a P90 Lester are da cheeze! Do a G string bend about thrid or fourth fret.... Humbuckers don't do that...humbuckers ain't that fat in all the stuff below the bite freq. when doing a bend... Just plain fat and rich... Don't specifically know why it is different but just is.. Bends on P90 Lesters are just plain sexy sounding.... Closer to the nut the bend is the greater the difference between P90 and humbuckers get...

Just my opinion over a lot of years....
