I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 3yrs and scoliosis at 7yrs and put in a brace. This August I was participating in a research study for diabetics with poor control, where half the participants get counseling and the other half don't, I am part of the other half. Then I am informed I need surgery as my scoliosis is at a large degree that was rapidly increased. The surgery was scheduled for the first of October, however, after the pre-operation, my a1c Was far too high so it was rescheduled for the 17th of November. My a1c went from 9.8 in September to 7.3 on the 6th of November. Now this research study will change for sure after this surgery. Lol
