The blogger, Mike, describes the steps which he feels have been helpful in lowering his HbA1c to less than 6.5% - a target some find impossible to reach. Importantly he acknowledges that these targets need to be individual, can be hard to achieve and individuals should discuss with their healthcare providers.
