    Stupid doctor having a go at me my Diabetes type 2 Diabetes.co.uk Hba1c reading is 52 which according to charts is good. Told i might have to go on more medication and insulin injections/. Which I dont understand why if its good according to this table. http://baspath.co.uk/Hba1c_table.pdf

    Super annoyed then they wondered why my blood pressure reading was high. Maybe because I was super ****** off.
    Now have to go back again and get my BP done again.

    What was your score last time? Surely that's as relevant as today's result?

    Well done on your progress so far. Are you aiming to get below the magic 48, or are you content to balance your lifestyle and numbers as they are now?

    I intend to keep going, I've put raised beds in my back garden to grow my own fruit and veg so making more of my own food rather than buying packaged foods.
