Next month I have to submit a weeks blood pressure results to the GP and had thought of asking for a blood test. However I am concerned that an HbA1c might see me over the threshold as my low carbing efforts haven't really been brilliant. I felt that a home test might be a case of 'Forewarned is forearmed'! It would stir me into action should it be necessary before I do present for an official blood test. Incidentally can I ask for an HbA1c or do I first have to see the GP/nurse?
