Hi Please can someone help me? I have been diagnosed as having diabetes last week, The doctor told me to make an appointment with the diabetic doctor at the surgery. When I did this the only appointment I could get was 6th July! In the meantime I tried to join the gym as I have also got depression and thought it would help. When doing my blood pressure it was really high and told to see a doctor before I could join. I went to see the doctor on Monday and he said yes my blood pressure was high but needed to see the diabetic doctoer (6th July). He told me to change my diet and also see the nurse the day after for a glucose testing machine. I went to the nurse the day after and when she did my reading showing me the machine it was 25.5 mmol. She said it was very high and to test it again before my lunch. I did this and it was 18.5. She spoke to a Doctor and they told me to wait till 6th July to see the diabetes doctor. Is this right?? I feel really awful. I am soooo tired?
