There is a series of educational events which diabetics are supposed to attend, so off I went this afternoon for the first one - oh dear oh dear - I am in dire danger of heart disease or bowel cancer eating low carb.
The eat well plate was carefully described and the things we diabetics should be doing were explained.
They did try to be a bit scientific, but most of it was inaccurate.
We - there were two of us, were handed test strips and a record sheet to test our urine for glucose. I had a go when I got back and got a negative, so that seems OK. I might save the remaining glucose meter test strips for the day I go to see the doctor again - just for my own amusement.
I seem to be getting readings under 7 mmol/l now, so it isn't really worth using up test strips to check what is going on.
