So I signed up to a new doctor because of a house move 2 weeks ago, in the routine new patient check they noticed my blood pressure was a little elevated so last week ran some blood tests. I'm a 26yo steady healthy weight, no health complaints myself. Friday I was called in urgently in the morning and I spent most of Friday in the doctors having loads more tests done. My blood sugar is reading between 12 and 16 consistently with peaks and troughs -in the doctors app after breakfast I was at 19, and then I was down to 9 yesterday because I didn't get time to eat lunch. My next appointment is Weds but understandably the doc and nurse have told me not to worry too much - just keep testing and they'll work out a course of action. It's all so new and a massive shock - just want to meet people who've been through a similar thing. Sure once the doc has helped me steady the boat it'll sink in and I'll build a routine. Yeah. So I'm flabbergasted - anyone have a similar situation? The worst thing is the waiting as I don't know anything about what I'm dealin with yet, what medication or changes I'll need to make. On the lighter side they didn't have a small sharps bin so I had to take a massive yellow box home on the bus. Made me giggle!
