When I first saw th diabetic nurse and started monitoring my blood sugar due to Glickazide, I was advised to send in any trends that were concerning. I was told they would respond and advise. Nurse said it could be medication or changes in diet. For almost 6 months, a few blips but they always resovled themselves. However, last week I noticed an uptick in my blood glucose levels and sent in my blood sugar levels because I felt I was doing what I was asked. GP calls and very dismissive and tells me there is nothing that needs to be done. He stated he relies on Hb1AC and not daily blood tests. I come from a math and statisitcs background. I know about variation and sampling. Nonetheless, the trend continues. If I am to be blase about testing an rely on Hb1AC great, then why test? I think a lot this comes down to my GP, to the best of my knowledge, no longer has a permanent GP as the last GP retired. Instead they use locums and it seems as though there is a lack of commitment by the GPs. For me, having a consistent message about what needs flagging will be helpful.
