I joined this forum in 2009 when I had a fasting blood sugar that put me as prediabetic. I was devastated as I was slim and exercised. I had the blood test as I was having, what in hindsight were diabetic symptoms. Thank goodness with help from this forum I discovered the truth about carbs and achieved a normal reading in three months. I’ve had hba1c’s done regularly by my gp, missed one last year, they’ve all been good, the highest has been 36, I think. I’ve just had a result of39! I’m shocked, shall I just go back to testing before and after eating? I’ve not long been on amlodipine, does this have any impact on blood sugar?
