    Just had my result which is shown in the new and the old way and it was 5.4% old way and 36 mmol/mol new way so your result is going to be similar to mine :thumbup: So congratulations :clap:

    Your result would have come to your doctors in both at present so your gp surgery should have been able to tell you but I think that it is some time this year that results will only be shown in mmol/mol :D

    Just been for my first 3 month checkup with diabetes nurse (diagnosed Nov last year). She gave me a printout showing results now and the first one in November, both were in the new format, I asked her to write on it the old format too. Was 52 new way/6.9 old, now 45 new way/6.2 old. I guess that means I'm doing pretty well - nurse seemed to think so.

    Put on Metformin, having seen the possible side effects listed on here I asked for the SR version, she said that's what they normally prescribe anyway :thumbup:
