Brief Answer:
About inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

First let me congratulate you about glucose control.
The Hba1c level is excellent and no chronic complications are expected if you continue like this.
Regarding to inflammation reduction, the most important prevention is to maintain normal blood sugar.

For more details i would ask you to give some more information;
-What are the symptoms of inflammation you have?
-Is infection excluded?
-Are the inflammation markers increased?

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

I haven’t had a recent inflammation test. About 4 years ago I had a XXXXXXX Heart ❤️ Health assessment. I need to go back and look at it. A few of the markers were on the high side.
I don’t have any infections now. I’m thinking of going on a more Mediterranean diet, and want to do diet, lifestyle changes, continue exercise(walking most days).

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

As there is no infection or inflammation for the moment, all you have to do is eat a healthy diet as recommended for all women at your age.Diabetes is not considered as a risk factor as long as you keep these levels.

So I would recommend too, a mediterranean diet (containing fruits like orange,lemons with plenty of Vitamin C) and physical activity.

Hope I have answered your query.
