I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 2018 and tried to control it via diet. Unsuccessfully. I occasionally check my blood sugar using a standard meter a couple of times a week. Recently I started getting readings of up to 29mmol/l so I contacted my GP and he called me this morning to discuss. Who told you to check your blood sugar? he kept asking me, who told you to do that? Stop doing that! I was really shocked. My last HcA1 in September 2019 showed 58, so he prescribed Metformin today. He never contacts me. Has anyone else had this from their GP? Saying do not check your blood sugar?
