Hi there, new to the forum, Im Tricia and I'm 57 yrs old. Been having GTTs etc over past 30 years due to gestational diabetes when pregnant with all four kids. Been up and down this past year but got tested both at local gym and work in past week due to health checks and one reading was 7.1 the other 7.2. Have been having awful headaches and generally feeling rubbish, mouth feels dry even when I've just had a drink and I'm tired by mid morning which isn't great on work days ! Trying to make an appointment with the doc but can't get one until next week. Just wondering if I should get a meter now to keep a closer check as only get checked at docs once a year ( previous doc did it every six months) what do you think ?? And is there one meter better than the other ??
