I am a retired ESL Teacher in Puerto Rico. Two month after retiring on August 1st, 2014 I got a heart attack that is when I found out I was a diabetic!! What caused the heart attack was that my AC1 was at 11% and my sugar at 500. I stood 6 days at the hospital and found that my articles were blocked so now I have 4 stents also. Doing exercises like walking, biking and diet has helped me lower my AC1 to 6.5%.
